Georgia State gets grant to study school bullying


The Atlanta Journal Constitution
Georgia State University has received a new federal grant to study school bullying.

The $800,000 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grant will help the college’s Department of Counseling and Psychological Services faculty conduct research on children in metro Atlanta school systems. The study is part of a five-year, $5 million grant awarded to the Emory University Center for Injury Control to look at how to prevent and treat a wide variety of injuries.

The Georgia State researchers will work with students who are victims of bullying as well as those who have been identified as bullies. See story.
