Tackle underlying issues to get to the root of bullying
By reframing bullying prevention, you can make significant progress in addressing the underlying issues causing bullying and aggression in your school. In this resource, James Dillon digs into the work that busy educators often have little time for: translating rich and insightful research on the dynamics of change into practical terms. He probes deeply into the issues and why they persist in our schools to promote meaningful conversation among school staff and parents. Inside you’ll find
- Vignettes, analogies, and real-life examples along with tools that illustrate the benefits of using alternative methods to prevent bullying
- Discussion on transforming the role of discipline to reframe bullying among teachers, administrators, and students
- Key ideas and concepts summarized in easy-to-understand bullet points and charts
- Guidance on how to establish a school climate that promotes empathy and compassion instead of fear
Reframing bullying prevention will allow competent and caring educators, students, and parents to not just stop bullying, but to improve the learning environment for all students.
"With bullying in our schools intensifying and becoming a dangerous detriment to both the learning process and to the self-esteem of our students, James Dillon provides sound strategies and realistic conversations that must become integral to the reduction and prevention of bullying in the schools."
