This research paper consists of three major components. The first component is a literature review of theoretical and substantive information compiled to outline, depict, and argue the causes and effects of bullying in 21st century America. It includes social theoretical ideals of overt and symbolic violence and control, as well as social and symbolic capital. It also includes feminist theories of body image as well as theories on how to address and put an end to bullying. The second component of this research paper is a discussion of personal experience conducting a ten week, one-on-one case study designed to help a nine year old girl who is a victim of bullying. It includes an overview of the goals of the research program, a discussion of what actually occurred over the ten week period, as well as a reflection of what I have learned and what I hope the subject of the research learned. Finally, the conclusion of this research paper·addresses future implications for the topic of bullying, as well as my personal goals to further the raising awareness and putting an end to bullying.
