The philosophy underlying KiVa relates to the importance of understanding the social architecture of bullying. In order to reduce bullying we do not necessarily need to change the victims, making them ”less vulnerable”, but influencing the behaviour of bystanders can reduce the rewards gained by the bullies and consequently, their motivation to bully in the first place. However, the victims need to feel that they are heard and helped by the adults at school and the bullies need to be tackled for their unacceptable behaviour. KiVa is a school-based program for bullying prevention and intervention, developed in Finland and used widely across Europe. KiVa should be adopted as a whole school approach.
