Bullying From Both Sides: Strategic Interventions for Working With Bullies & Victims
Roberts, Walter B.
Today's bullies and victims are far more complex than the traditional labels of "thug" and "wimp" make them out to be. As a result, educators can not rely upon traditional methods to break the cycle of bullying. In response, this landmark new book challenges educators to work effectively with bullies as well as victims, and gives them the tools to do it. Part One of Bullying From Both Sides offers concrete information to help educators understand and recognize the range of students at risk for victimization and aggression. Part Two provides counselors, administrators, and teachers with a four-point intervention plan that covers: (1) Surveying students to prevent school violence; (2) Safeguarding victims; (3) Determining when-and how- to contact parents; (4) Handling female bullying and cyberbullying; and (5) Counseling for immediate and long-term support, and more. With an annotated resource list of recommended books and videos, this invaluable resource will inspire and equip educators to prevent next week's crisis today. Following a Foreword(Rosalind Wisemanthis book is divided into two parts. Part I: The Reality of Bullying, Bullies, and Victims, presents: (1) The Prevalence of Bullying; (2) Definitions of Bullying and Teasing; (3) Victims; (4) Victimization and Retaliation; and (5) Bullies. Part II: Effective Intervention Strategies for Bullies and Victims: Parents and Schools as Partners, concludes with: (6) Strategic Intervention Point 1: The Best Intervention is Prevention; (7) Strategic Intervention Point 2: Safeguard the Victim; (8) Strategic Intervention Point 3: Engage the Victim in Constructive and Supportive Interactions; (9) Strategic Intervention Point 4: Engage the Bully in Constructive and Supportive Interactions; and (10) What Now? Taking Those First Steps. This book concludes with Recommended Resources and an Index.
