Going beyond other bullying prevention resources, this book presents an approach grounded in evidence-based best practices, together with concrete guidance for weaving it sustainably into the fabric of a school. The authors describe a range of ways to support the development of prosocial skills in K–12 students, make data-based decisions to respond to bullying, and build partnerships across students, staff, and families. Of crucial importance, the book explains how to ensure that bullying prevention efforts are implemented with fidelity and do not fade away over time. An in-depth case study illustrates what effective implementation looks like in the school setting. The large-size format facilitates photocopying; reproducible tools to support implementation can be downloaded and printed for repeated use.

This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series , edited by Sandra M. Chafouleas.


"As the mental health needs of students are increasingly brought into the spotlight, bullying behaviors remain alive and well, placing our most vulnerable students at substantial risk. Fortunately, Drs. Collins and Harlacher have created a research-based, comprehensive, and practical model to help practitioners and educators find sure footing within a rapidly changing landscape. The illustrative examples and clearly defined processes make this book current and accessible to a variety of potential readers. I recommend it to professionals in any district or school seeking to develop or rewrite their student support policies."--Justin Gaddis, PhD, LP, Executive Director, Health Services and Well-Being, Fort Worth Independent School District, Texas

"Collins and Harlacher recognized that available bullying prevention approaches were fragmented, often neglecting one or more components. This book combines key elements of social and emotional learning, school climate, and multi-tiered systems of support--while also providing clear guidance about curricula to use, partnerships to build, data-based decision making, and implementation. It provides a turnkey solution for districts and individual schools, and is replete with practical examples, templates to follow, and checklists to make sure you are on track with your efforts. Whether you are completely revamping your policies and programming, or simply looking to see more results, the knowledge and strategies you need are in this book."--Sameer Hinduja, PhD, Co-Director, Cyberbullying Research Center; School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Florida Atlantic University
