Editorial Reviews

Counseling Today
"The conventional adult wisdom about bullying—ignore it and it will go away—is faulty advice that sends a dangerous message to children. Roberts's book provides a very useful resource for school counselors who wish to counter that dangerous message in strategic, workable ways."
Steve Hutton

"This may be the first book that includes the idea of working with and helping the bully along with the victim. . . . Detailed information provides educators with a plan of action about the problem of bullying. The passion of the author is evident."

Diana Joyce

"Clearly reflects considerable effort, knowledge, and expertise. . . . The author introduces many intervention strategies in a manner that is easily understood and can be generalized to many situations."

Michael Auer

"The book's strengths are its step-wise tactics and strategies for counselors. Readers will respect the author's professional authority; I most certainly do."

Allan Morotti

"A must-have resource for anyone dedicated to understanding and ending bullying in schools."

    Great for Both Educators and Parents

    I have used many resources to address bullying, but this one is the best. The author has a wealth of experiences and writes in a style that is understandable to everyone. It gave me lots of new ideas. Lots of common sense and the sample scripts are a great help.

    You Need This Book!

    This book is extremely useful for those dealing with kids who are victimized and those who create the problem. The author knows his stuff and writes in a clear fashion. Also, the recommended scripts for helping adults talk to kids who are bullies or victims are extremely useful in helping get conversations started.
