The population for the study consisted of newly admitted 100level students of a faith based private university in Nigeria. Random sampling technique was used to select the participants. The study adopted a 3x2 pre-test and post test experimental research design consisting of two treatment groups and one control group. Each of this group had 40 participants with a total of 120. Three hypotheses were formulated and Multidimensional Ten Commandments Questionnaire (M10CQ) by Snell (1995) was the instrument used for data collection. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyse the data at the 0.05 level of significance. Results revealed a significant effect in the two-way interaction effect of treatment and gender on the bullying behaviour of secondary school students (F(2,101) = 8.567 p <0.05).The study also revealed that gender (F1,101 = 6.212; p < 0.05) did interact with the effect of the two treatments. Based on these findings, Counselling Psychologists, Religious leader could use any of the treatment packages (Logotherapy and Philosophy teaching) as identified by the study in changing the belief concept of the undergraduate .Thus gender have to be taken into consideration.
