Strategic Interventions for Working With Bullies & Victims
The problem of bullying and teasing among children and adolescents will never be solved until adults address the needs of both the bullies and their victims.
Bullying From Both Sides: Strategic Interventions for Working With Bullies & Victims is one of the first to give direct and specific strategies to teachers on intervening with both aggressive youth and those children targeted for abuse. In an easy-to-read format, author Walter Roberts lays out the basic psychology behind what bullies and victims think and how they behave. He provides specific intervention steps to implement with both groups, including sample scripts to start a positive dialogue toward correcting misbehaviour and beginning the healing process for those who are negatively impacted by bullying actions.
An annotated resource list provides readers with additional books and videos to assist them to "grow their own" bullying prevention programs. Teachers, administrators, school counsellors, and related student services personnel will find the book essential in their efforts to reduce school violence.
