Overview

Headlines are filled with tragic stories of senseless murders and suicides that have resulted from child and teen bullying. As social networking and technology add to the ways that kids can be bullied, parents feel powerless against this insidious force that compels even "good" kids to participate in or enable bullying in schools, in extracurricular activities, online, and at home.

The Essential Guide to Bullying brings together the wisdom and experience of two people who have witnessed bullying's causes and tragic effects. School social worker Cindy Miller teams with Cynthia Lowen, the co-creator of Bully, to arm parents and teachers with the knowledge they need to:

  • Understand the societal and human forces that are causing bullying to escalate.
  • Discover who is most at risk for being bullied, being a bully, or not helping a bullying victim.
  • Target-proof their kids and teach them coping skills.
  • Identify even the most covert bullying situations.
  • Infiltrate the world of cyberbullying and head off its disastrous effects.
  • Intervene to stop a bullying situation.
  • Know what legal recourse they have to back up other anti-bullying efforts.

VOYA - Beth Norby
Bullying is currently a hot topic among educators, parents, and anyone who has a stake in the welfare of our teens. This guide is written by a school social worker and provides sections on how to recognize bullying, how to prevent bullying from occurring, and how to intervene once bullying is a problem. The author provides concrete examples of different types of bullying so they all can be recognized, including digital abuse and cyberbullying. The reader gains knowledge of how to recognize when a teen is being bullied or is taking an active role in the bullying. The section on prevention uses concise language that focuses on how to make the school environment one where bullying is unacceptable and not tolerated. The third section provides real world advice for intervening when various types of bullying occur and offers ways to help both the victim and the bully. This guide would be an excellent addition to a professional library for people who serve teens, but it is especially geared towards school educators and administrators. This guide provides realistic solutions for preventing bullying among teens and how to properly intervene to provide the best support for the victim. With such a focus on bullying prevention in education and schools, this guide offers easy-to-use advice from an expert in the field. Ages adult professional.
