Reviews - What do customers think about The Bullying Prevention Handbook: A Guide for Principals, Teachers, and Counselors?

Bully-Proof Early or It May Be Too Late !  Jun 24, 2008
Its long overdue ...the focus on bullying in our schools that is really taking its toll on children emotionally and preventing learning from taking place. This book has some great information for educators in middle school and high school on the topic- how to recognize it and intervene to stop it. Unfortunately much of this problem begins way sooner than that. We should be dealing heavily with this issue as part of the curriculum in the elementary grades as well. Bullying takes root as early as first grade. We need to begin there and be proactive. Fot this reason I highly recommend Bully-Proofing Children: A Practical, Hands-On Guide to Stop Bullying. The authors give invaluable tools for schools K-12, teachers and parents for preventing bullying and intervention techniques. Its emphasis also on teaching and preventing kids from becoming victims; making the bystander responsible for not allowing it and the comng together of everyone to refuse to allow it to flourish in schools and in the home makes this book truly the key to stopping it.
Useful tool for professionals  Oct 24, 2005
This book provides useful information for the professional interested in decreasing bullying in his/her school. There are role play scenarios and discussion of teasing dos and don'ts. There are also reproducible screening checklists and surveys to measure the extent of bullying on your campus. How to appropriately conduct an interview with a bully is included as well. While this is not a comprehensive resource, it is a great jumping board to begin ridding your school of bullies and it provides a list of additional resources one may look in to.
BULLY? Worst than Physical Assault  Mar 17, 2002
Bullying? Every school has kids who tease, taunt, shove up and beat other kids for no reason at all. Ignored, exulted sort of indirect bullying is worst than a physical assault too that kids face at School or just about anywhere! Bullying has just become of the most underrated but enduring problems in schools today. The cases rise to shoot up and as the survey speaks, it has been a challenging task for the mentors to instill the values of human relationships.Its sometimes the attitude of parents/teachers/adult that fail to instill moral values to the kids.Recognizing degrees of teasing and learning to cope with hurtful teasing are important life skills a child needs to learn. Often bullies become more unhappy and aggressive with age. When a bully attacks kids, they often feel ashamed and refrain from talking about it. Bullying Prevention Handbook offer resources tested and proven creating safe environments for students. The main topics presented by the author are the characteristics of a bully, individual and group interventions at home and at school. Discipline, creating life skills and safe environment at schools is necessary for child development. The Handbook is indeed a good 'guide'
Excellent information on prevention of bullying  Nov 29, 2001
This book is the product of the National Educational Service, whose stated goal is to offer resources that have been tested and proven helpful in creating safe environments for young people. In addition to creating safe schools, their areas of expertise include: working in culturally diverse environments, containing crises, anger management, building life skills in young people, handling the threat of youth suicide, and discipline with dignity.

The Bullying Prevention Handbook contains a great deal of information, but the style of writing is clear and easy to read. Though there is no index, the table of contents is very clear, and the book is well laid out. The three main topics presented are: the characteristics of a bully, individual and group interventions at home and at school, and a specific anti-bullying education program. The authors provide references, an extensive bibliography, and many appendices containing multiple evaluation checklists and screening forms.

Though this book is billed in its subtitle as "a guide for principals, teachers and counselors," I recommend it highly to parents, as well. It is frequently only through the intervention of concerned, informed parents that excellent violence-prevention programs such as the one outlined in this book are implemented. Preventing violence in the schools is not a simple, overnight process. It requires the commitment and cooperation of the school staff, parents and the community at large.

Highly practical, new guidelines for schools and therapists  May 18, 1999
Both victim and bully are helped to avoid usual traps of demeaning bullies and reinforcing habitual victims. New alliances are built with bullies, with clear steps towards genuine empowerment as well as protection of other children. Family guidelines useful for therapists, perhaps not always for schools.
