DescriptionThis fully revised edition sets out what we know about bullying and harassment in schools, and combines this with proven practical and effective resources to prevent, address and deal with bullying and harassment.
The author provides a guide for the development, implementation and evaluation of effective anti-bullying philosophies, policies and programmes. He sets out guidelines for creating and clarifying school policy and practice to provide a strong foundation for the establishment of a whole-school approach to bullying. The author shows how to support a culture of problem-solving that is soundly based on research but also draws on the knowledge and experience of teaching and administrative staff, students and the wider community in developing and implementing anti-bullying programmes.
This book is a useful resource for all schools, from those just starting to consider setting up an anti-bullying initiative, to those with well-established programmes that wish to consider anti-bullying best practice.
New material in this edition includes:
- What we know and can do about cyberbullying
- Teaching the very young and children aged 5-12 about bullying
- Confronting issues through collaborative and restorative justice techniques
- Social Action Drama
This book is a key resource for teachers, administrators, counsellors, therapists, psychologists, teacher trainers, students and parents.
