Bullying has reached epidemic proportions in this country, with 83% of girls and 79% of boys experiencing bullying. Classrooms, which are supposed to be a place of learning, are no safe haven, with 1 out of 5 students reporting that they have been bullied at school. Educators, administrators, and parents have tried a variety of techniques to stop bullying but those methods rarely work long-term. Why? Because bullying is much larger than the two-person dynamic typically envisioned. This innovative workbook, Those Who Bully and Those Who Are Bullied, takes a multi-pronged approach, helping each member of the school community understand the role he or she plays in encouraging, ignoring, or addressing a bullying situation and outlining the skills needed to make a difference. With a variety of specific group and individual activities, this workbook creates opportunities for discussion-giving language to define and identify the underlying emotions felt by everyone involved, tapping into compassion and understanding on all levels, and providing social skills awareness and self-esteem to empower the entire school community to be the "upstanders" needed to end classroom bullying.
