These timely intervention strategies make your school safer for everyone!

Bullying Behavior: Current Issues, Research, and Interventions provides the most up-to-date reports on the dynamics of bullying, including who bullies and why, who the victims are, and how depression and anxiety are correlated with bullying. It also presents detailed case studies of successful anti-bullying strategies for both local schools and national campaigns. Drawing on national and international clinical research, this book is indispensable for teachers and school administrators, therapists and child psychologists, social workers, child advocates and counselors, court personnel, probation officers, and education policymakers.

Bullying Behavior addresses all the issues of bullying, including:
preventing sexual harassment
models of bully and victim behavior
the roles of dominance and bullying in the development of early heterosexual relationships
psychosocial correlates in bullying and victimization
peer influences during early adolescence
students who are passive observers to the victimization of others

World Pastoral Care Center Resources Hotline

“For this scholarly collection, the editors have selected THE MOST CURRENT RESEARCH on the topic, including chapters on who bullies are and why they exhibit this behavior, whom they victimize, and other factors that may come into play. . . . Of interest to counselors, social workers, therapists, school administrators, and education policy makers.”
School Library Journal

Youth Today

Choice Magazine

“DESERVES TO BE READ BY EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO REDUCE YOUTH VIOLENCE. . . . Bullying has rightfully become a major consideration in our efforts to reduce the incidence and prevalence of school violence and other forms of aggression in young people. This book makes a significant contribution to the literature. Not only does it expand our understanding of various theoretical perspectives and dynamics; it also takes a close look at interventions that can address the problem of bullying.”
Joseph T. McCann, PsyD, JD, Editor, Journal of Threat Assessment

“ESSENTIAL READING for school administrators and staff, mental health practitioners, and others. . . . AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE FIELD. . . . Provides interesting perspectives regarding the impact bullying has in American schools, on what intervention strategies might be most effective, and on how various disciplines might broaden the discussion and our understanding of bullying.”
Nancy Mullin-Rindler, MEd, Director, Project on Teasing and Bullying, Wellesley College Centers for Women
