O'Moore, Mona; Minton, Stephen James
Paul Chapman Publishing
This book is an attempt to pinpoint constructive ways to deal with bullying, and to support people in their endeavours to undertake effective anti-bullying work in school communities. The overall aim of this book is to provide school communities with the practical support and key to resources that they need in preventing and countering bullying and aggressive behaviour in schools. As the subtitle suggests, this book has been written primarily for practitioners as a training text. However, it is intended that every part of the school community--be these members of school management staff, members of classroom staff, parents of students, or students themselves--should potentially gain a great deal, in terms of practical understanding and advice, by reading at least certain sections of this book. Accordingly, the main body of this book has been divided into five main sections: (1) The Problem of Bullying; (2) Formulating an Effective Anti-Bullying Policy in Schools; (3) What Teachers Need to Know; (4) What Parents Need to Know; and (5) What All Young People Need to Know. The following are appended: (1) Resources for talks/training with school management staff; (2) Resources for talks/training with classroom staff; (3) Resources for talks with parents; and (4) Resources for general talks with students.
Descriptors: Learning Activities, Class Activities, Young Adults, Adolescents, Bullying, Educational Policy, Teacher Education, Parent School Relationship, Prevention, Aggression
