Overview

Preventing Bullying and School Violence is a practical handbook for designing and sustaining effective interventions to address problem behaviors in schools. According to this groundbreaking book, the mental health professional can play a crucial role in preventing school violence by taking the lead in forging collaborative connections between the school and the community to build a healthy academic environment. The hands-on guidance offered in this volume will be eminently useful to clinicians, school counselors, and administrators, as well as other mental health professionals, including social workers and psychologists.

Although its coverage of risk analysis and threat assessment is comprehensive, the book also focuses on prevention and offers techniques for promoting wellness in the school and the larger community. An abundance of clinical examples illustrate the challenges faced by the mental health professional in this role and provide many practical strategies for working within the often-complex bureaucracies involved with school violence and bullying issues. The authors of Preventing Bullying and School Violence see bullying as a process, not a problem confined to one individual, and their focus on the home--school--community connection offers a strong framework for mental health professionals to work as agents of effective change in schools and communities.

Editorial Reviews

Deborah M. Weisbrot
This is truly an impressive book with a pragmatic focus that aims to provide the reader with a conceptual framework to address the daunting problems of school violence and bullying. It offers an in-depth perspective on the topic, which will be of value to all mental health clinicians involved in school consultations…. Each chapter is replete with complex case examples that ring true as actual cases with which those of us involved in this field often struggle…. Preventing Bullying and School Violence is an important book on a compelling topic. The authors provide a masterful approach and set the standard for thoughtful psychiatric consultation on the pervasive problem of violence in our schools.

(M.D., The American Journal of Psychiatry)
