`jargon-free and concise. This is a very readable, thorough and practical book of use to young people, parents and in particular to school staff in preventing and dealing with bullying' - Counselling Children and Young People (CCYP) '...the authors drive home the strong message that bullying 'should never be accepted' and how it can be life threatening. There is clear evidence that the training is based on current research. I found the format innovative, with the excellent add-on of being able to download PowerPoint training slides from the publisher's website' - Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties `Highly readable and practical, this is a book that provides details of specific ways in which members of the of the school community can collaborate to reduce the incidence of bullying in their school' - Teacher `This is a clearly written and well designed resource. It is likely to be of value to anyone wishing to develop active anti-bullying policies in schools and is designed for use as a staff development tool over a period of time, but is also focused on the needs of parents, children and young people themselves. It providers some excellent guidance on writing an anti-bullying policy, a useful overview of practical strategies to prevent and counter bullying, helpful advice for parents of children who are being bullied, or children who are involved in bullying others ' - SENCO Update `I like the book's message: Bullying is an activity rather than a stereotypical role. It's no blame approach aims to modify behaviour to avoid provoking a cycle of escalating violence' - The Psychologist `This excellent book begins by dispelling some myths, hoping to offer schools constructive ways to tackle this deep-seated problem. Clear courses of action are set out, including some for parents whose children are bullying others, and there are photocopiable training resources in the appendices' TES Special Needs `This is a carefully considered and road-tested book that could be an invaluable resource to staff seeking to develop their school's response to bullying'- Journal of In-Service Education `Dealing with Bullying in Schools is a very readable book and should be available in every school in the country. What the book emphasizes is that bullying is everyone's problem not merely teacher. This includes the Head of the school, parents and everyone who is part of the community within the school' - Dr L F Lowenstein, Educational, Clinical and Forensic Psychological Consultant `The book is strong on practical information, including handouts and overhead projector sheets, for training staff, students and parents'- Geoff Barton, Times Educational Supplement, Friday Magazine Developed from training courses run by the two authors on the subject of dealing with bullying in schools, this book is designed to work as a training manual. It is geared towards the needs of the class teacher, the school management team, the bullied, the bullies and the parents of both parties.

The premise of this guidebook for teacher educators, school professionals, and in-service and pre-service teachers is that bullying occurs because of breakdowns in relationships. The focus of the 10-point empirically researched anti-bullying program it presents is based on building and repairing relationships. Explaining how to use social architecture to erase bullying from classrooms, this book translates research into easily understandable language provides a step-by-step plan and the tools (classroom exercises, activities, practical strategies) to insure success in building classrooms where acceptance, inclusion, and respect reign examines the teacher's role, classroom management, bystander intervention, friendship, peer support, empathy, incompatible activities, stopping incidents, and adult support from a relationship perspective If every teacher in every classroom learned to apply this book's principles and suggestions, bullying would no longer plague our schools and educators could give 100 percent of their attention to academics.

Results from numerous surveys indicate that many students do not feel safe in school. This condition exacts an academic as well as a psychological toll because, as the authors remind us, children must feel safe in order to learn. The authors of Preventing Bullying and School Violence contend that inadequate attention has been given to the role of mental health professionals in preventing bullying and school violence. They propose a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach, one that draws upon the skills of the educational, health care, and mental health communities in identifying risk, choosing appropriate interventions, and implementing targeted wellness programs. The authors see bullying as a process, not a problem originating with a single troubled person. Accordingly, they believe that bullying behaviors can be effectively addressed only by targeting the broader social context -- the coercive power and group dynamics that breed and maintain bullying and violent behavior in the school setting. The book is designed to help clinicians, school counselors, and administrators create a safe climate for their students and to respond thoughtfully, but swiftly, when threats arise. The authors offer many practical guidelines for achieving these goals, addressing The critical importance of establishing a strong connection between the family, the school, and the community in creating a healthy academic environment Strategies for working effectively with the complex social bureaucracies that often characterize the entities (such as school boards and governmental agencies) that intervene in cases involving violent children, with an emphasis on developing skills in managing both small and large groups Ways to define and recognize at-risk children who require special attention as a result of having mental illness and/or learning disability Innovative community interventions, such as therapeutic mentoring and home-based therapy, in addition to information on local, state, and federal programs designed to support antiviolence programs in the schools Techniques for promoting wellness among the student population -- not just physical wellness, but also the positive attitudes and coping skills that are the hallmarks of mental health. Preventing Bullying and School Violence aims to empower mental health professionals to work confidently and effectively in educational settings to reduce the distress, enhance the psychological well-being, and secure the safety of all schoolchildren.

Educators need to know bullying facts and trends, what their legal and professional responsibilities are, and research-based best practices for responding to and preventing bullying. Furthermore, educators must recognize the fundamental importance of a positive school climate—an environment where all members of the school community feel safe, supported, and respected— and must know how to promote the the values and behaviors that contribute to such a climate. The Bullying Prevention Book of Lists offers all this and more in a convenient, accessible format. Designed to provide school administrators, teachers, and support staff with quick access to key information and practical strategies, this book is an invaluable tool for any K-12 school.
