Item description for Violence Rductionins Schools-how to Make a Difference 2006 (Responses to Violence in Everyday Life) by co-ordination Chris Gittins...
Most schools are safe places for children but that does not mean that members of a school community live and learn together in harmony at all time. Violence towards children can take place in a variety of forms, including physical and verbal abuse and bullying. This is a practical handbook for schools to use when training staff in techniques for reducing violence.
In particular, it addresses two issues: how to establish and maintain a learning environment where violence is not tolerated and how to respond to violence when it occurs so that this environment is protected.
Each chapter covers a critical area for school policy, describes the issues, and proposes activities designed to be combined into a training programme to meet the specific needs of a group of staff. This includes teachers and the growing number of support staff in European schools.
School leaders, administrators and educationalists should find this guide a useful addition to the resources for reducing violence in schools available in their own country.
