Being evidence based makes it unique amongst audiovisual resource materials on antibullying interventions. Research by Professors Phillip Slee & Rosalind Murray-Harvey, from the School of Education at Flinders University, used questionnaires and focus groups to collect data from over 700 students at Unley High School over the period of a year. Interviews were also conducted with key school and health personnel.
