Results showed that the experimental group reported significant higher scores of post-test and up regarding the perception of self-efficacy ability from subjected to bullying and self-efficacy behavior from subjected to bullying than pre-test (p<.001). Compared with the comparison group, the experimental group reported significantly different between mean scores of the perception of
