Six approaches to bullying are listed by Dr. Ken Rigby:

1. Traditional Disciplinary Methods
This is the oldest form of dealing with bullying and the most popular of all approaches, Rigby says.

2. Strengthening the victim
This sets out to equip the victim with the skills to counter a bullying attack themselves.

3. Mediation
Teachers or trained students take on the role of mediator

4. Restorative Justice
This method begins with the feelings of remorse the bully voluntarily expresses.

5. Support group
Formely known as the no-blame approach, the first step in this method is to hear from the victim and the ways in which bullying has affected them

6. Method of shared concern
Another non-blaming approach to bullying, this is the most comprehensive and complex method in the book, Rigby says.
