Abstract: The Board on Children, Youth, and Families, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, in conjunction with the Committee on Law and Justice, convened a committee of experts to conduct a consensus study that produced a comprehensive report on the state of the science on the biological and psychosocial consequences of peer victimization behavior and consequences, as well as the risk and protective factors that either increase or decrease peer victimization behavior and consequences for victims. The committee and project staff produced a final report entitled, “Preventing Bullying Through Science, Policy, and Practice.” This report is available as a free download at www.nas.edu/scienceonbullying. The printed books will be available by early August, 2016. This summary of the report features seven recommendations for making progress in monitoring, preventing, and intervening in bullying. A number of the recommendations are directed to agencies that participate in the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention, an interagency group. Several of the committee’s recommendations have implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States. The committee also concluded that additional research is needed in evaluating the effectiveness of anti-bullying laws and policies. Appended examples of how the report has been covered in the media
