Item description for Creating Emotionally Safe Schools: A Guide for Educators and Parents by Jane Bluestein...

Examines the factors that contribute to the emotional safety of schools.

Publishers Description

Something is terribly wrong with our schools. How did a place that should be a sanctuary for kids becomes a source of fear and intimidation? What has happened?

In "Creating Emotionally Safe Schools, "Jane Bluestein offers a plan to return schools to havens of nurturing and learning. She examines environmental, historical, developmental, psychological, sociological, interpersonal, instructional and administrative factors that contribute to the emotional climate of an educational institution. This is a comprehensive view of what makes a school feel the way it feels, and what we can do to make it feel safe for every child-and every adult-who walks through its doors.

Emotional safety has many dimensions, such as: the impact of the family and early development, childhood stress and coping, the changing role of the school, acceptance and emotional support, respect and belonging, temperament and labels, gangs and violence, instructional strategies, learning styles and multiple intelligences, teacher training and support, and the inherent need for a sense of community. The message Jane Bluestein brings is positive: information, programs and solutions are available that can ultimately make our schools inviting, inspiring, and, yes-safe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creating Emotionally Safe Schools: A Guide for Educators and Parents?

long-winded and redundant  Jun 11, 2007
The editors of this book could have easily trimmed the 381 pages of text (not counting the appendices) to 125 pages of useful information. The content of the book is excellent. The author describes hundreds of scenarios of feeling "unsafe" physically or emotionally in school and then suggests way to remedy these problems. Unfortunately, the reader must trudge through references to countless research studies that would only interest a graduate student, as these studies have no bearing on the content of the text, and only serve to "prove" the authors point. The reader doesn't need this proof, so hundreds of pages are essentially worthless to the casual reader.

As a graduate student, I appreciate the research and time the author took compiling the information. As a teacher, I know the value of creating educationally sound environments so that students can learn. But as an avid reader of all genres of text, this was a waste of my time. I have read far more helpful and creative books that valued my time as a reader and did not meander through repetitive ideas and insinuations. For the same info you'll receive in this book, but with much more reader satisfaction, read texts by Ruby Payne, Michael Gurian, Stephen Covey, or John Maxwell.
A million stars wouldn't be enough for this book... IT is the best!  Oct 28, 2005
This book changed the way I think about things.

To start out with, I have had a heck of a time in High School, being teased relentlessly... so when I saw this at the bookstore where I worked at the time, I put it aside to buy later.... then I bought it, read it, and went crazy... every single thing that bothered me in High School was addressed in here.

This book has a great title, this book has great content, and this book is an essential in any library, personal or otherwise. If you love your kids and see this book lying around, it is a safe bet that youw will pick it up and benefit greatly from it!!!!

Honestly, there are few books out there that say what this one says... and the way it is said. Jane is a gem, she is a national treasure for writing this book!
Necessary Changes in Our School System.  Oct 14, 2001
This book is an interesting read from the very beginning. Each chapter's beginning grabs your attention and I found myself turning pages to get to the rest of the story. The suggestions are logical and can be implemented to the benefit of teachers, students and parents. It's about time for this really important book.
