Item description for The Bully and Me: Stories That Break the Cycle of Violence [With CD] by Helen Carmichael Porter...

Overview
This pack contains a book and an audio CD. Porter has been touring her stories about victims and bullies for over seven years. These stories are first person accounts by both victims and bullies. The victims try to change the situation and usually, but not always, succeed. The stories are descriptive narratives of what happens to real people. They are based on Porter's observations, countless interviews, personal experience, and imagination. The book explores the idea that victims and bullies are two sides of the same coin and that the healing of both lies in dealing with this paradox. There is not a lot of real violence in these stories; there is some, and much of it is implied in threats, taunts, gossip, e-mails, gestures, and language. Most of the bullying is teasing and it is always designed to torment and ridicule. "The Bully and Me" also refers to biblical and folk tales in the comments showing how bullying is not a new problem. This is not a self-help book; it is about listening to and thinking about the stories of bullying that happen everyday in our homes, our schools, and our communities.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Bully and Me: Stories that Break the Cycle of Torment?

An excellent introduction to the difficult world of bullying in childhood  Jun 6, 2006
The Bully And Me: Stories That Break The Cycle Of Torment by educator and professional storyteller Helen Carmichael Porter is an excellent introduction to the difficult world of bullying in childhood -- especially at school. Offering readers a remarkable study of the victimization that effects so many children in every community and at every socio-economic level, The Bully And Me compiles a multitude of observations, interviews, personal advice, and tips for communication skills, survival, and supportive understandings. For its informative and helpful guidance through the often difficult issues surrounding childhood stress brought on by tormenting bullies, flawed social skill development, and reinforced maltreatment by peers, The Bully And Me is very strongly recommended for all school administrators and policy makers, as well as classroom teachers and parents whose students and children live in fear of the school setting due to the terrors of childhood bullying.
