The ultimate guide to recognizing and reducing bullying behaviors in school!
Today's bullies and victims are far more complex than traditional labels of "thug" and "wimp" make them out to be. As a result, educators can't rely upon traditional methods to break the cycle of bullying. In response, this landmark new book challenges educators to work effectively with bullies as well as victims, and gives them the tools to do it.
Part One of Bullying From Both Sides offers concrete information to help educators understand and recognize the range of students at risk for victimization and aggression. Part Two provides counselors, administrators, and teachers with a four-point intervention plan that covers:
- Surveying students to prevent school violence
- Safeguarding victims
- Determining when-and how- to contact parents
- Handling female bullying and cyberbullying
- Counseling for immediate and long-term support, and more!
With an annotated resource list of recommended books and videos, this invaluable resource will inspire and equip educators to prevent next week's crisis today.
