Abstract:One of the values of retrospective studies in bullying is that they give the ‘service-user’ an opportunity to feed their experiences and suggestions back into the school system. This paper reports on the advice given to schools by a cross section of adults who were D/deaf (n = 35) during a qualitative, retrospective study on bullying that involves children who are deaf. From their suggestions it was possible to sketch a framework for a recursive cycle of interventions targeting children, staff, the school as a whole and the wider community. Participants' opinions and suggestions varied widely but in so doing mirrored current dilemmas in anti-bullying work. A suggestion is made for a six pronged approach to combat bullying.
