Bullying and the Brain: Using Cognitive and Emotional Intelligence to Help Kids Cope
Plaford, Gary R.
Rowman & Littlefield Education
Numerous books have been written about bullying, but most of them only deal with external interventions-those that suggest teaching students more appropriate social skills. Here, Gary Plaford deals with these social skills, also known as internal interventions, as well as the external interventions. The information is presented in layman's terms for any group wanting to address the issue of bullying. Bullying and the Brain discusses: (1) Monitoring and controlling bullying behaviors; (2) Issues related to students-the bullies, the victims, and the bystanders; (3) The latest research and findings on the brain and emotional intelligence; (4) Managing emotional triggers; (5) Building connections; and (6) Creating an outward focus. Included is a study guide to help faculty plan the necessary steps to address bullying problems at school. This guide also provides worksheets in order to proceed with the necessary interventions. This book will be of interest to parents and educators of students from elementary to high school. The book is divided into three parts as follows, Part I: External Interventions; Part II: Internal Interventions; and Part III: Internal Interventions Strategies.
