ABSTRACT
A recent meta-analysis of bullying prevention programs provides support for social-ecological theory, in which parent involvement addressing child bullying behaviors is seen as important in preventing school-based bullying. The purpose of this manuscript is to suggest how Epstein and colleagues' parent involvement model can be used as a framework in implementing bullying prevention programs. School counselors can use the types of parent involvement identified in Epstein and van Voorhis (2010) model, including parenting, communicating, volunteering, learning at home, decision-making, and collaborating with the community, in working with parents and families in the service of promoting anti-bullying interventions and programming in school systems.
