The Essential Guide to Bullying: Prevention And Intervention Reviews
I loved this book. Even though it had statistics about the rate of bullying, in its various forms, in America, the hints, tips and recommendations that it had to share far out-weighed this aspect. Last year I did a joint presentation about cyber-bullying and none of the resources we had available to us at the time were as good as this book. It's an easy read and whilst one chapter flows into the next, this is not undermined at all if you just wanted to go to a specific chapter to get some helpful information on a particular situation or area of concern that you may have at that time.Whether you are a parent, caregiver, grandparent or just someone who is interested in this subject, this is one book you should have on your bookshelves as reference book, if for no other reason.
This bullying guide does what it's title states; provides intervention when bullying happens, and also explores how parents, teachers, and administrators can facilitate skills that prevent bullying. I found the set up of the book to be easy to follow and use. Kudos to authors Miller & Lowen for the thorough explanation of relationship and emotion-regulation needed to equip children with the character to handle bullying-- and not be the ones dishing it out. Highly recommended read for parents.
