We've seen it too many times-the weak, lonely child being tormented by an aggressive, powerful bully. The result is a damaging outcome for the victim, bully, and school community at large. Bully Prevention, Second Edition, addresses the growing concern of bullying and violence by offering updated strategies for developing social skills, resolving conflicts and intervening in bullying situations.

Providing techniques for immediate implementation in both elementary and secondary classrooms, this resource includes:

o Explanations of the relationships between bullies, victims, and witnesses

By using these tools to plan and implement anti-bullying programs, educators can increase the safety of all their students.
