Abstract

This chapter overviews the nature of peer support as it is currently practised in English, Japanese and South Korean schools. We outline the extent and varieties of peer support use in the three countries individually using the available research evidence. How peer support methods may be adapted to tackle the different forms of bullying which are present in the three nations is then explored. Finally, we consider the importance of readiness within schools and educational systems for peer support systems to take root and flourish.
