Since bullying continues to be a problem in many schools, this guide will assist school administrators and teachers in creating an anti-bullying program.

The author details how to implement training for school personnel and volunteers and conduct awareness sessions for students, parents and the community. He also provides guidance in establishing policies, rules, behavioral expectations, discipline rubrics and response plans.

The nineteen steps - which include intervention and prevention strategies - outlined in this comprehensive volume will assist in creating an effective ant-bullying program for any size campus.

'It is wonderful to have caring teachers who have a passion for stopping bullying, but they cannot do this alone,' writes Beane. 'They need the help of many others - administrators, custodians, bus drivers, bus monitors, cafeteria workers, volunteers, students, parents, school resource officers, counselors, school psychologists, and key community representatives.'

Just wanting to stop bullying isn't enough. It is necessary to have a program in place that involves everyone in the school community in putting an end to this negative behavior. Beane's program, which has been proven successful in reducing and preventing bullying, not only integrates prevention and intervention strategies but also offers an evaluation process to ascertain how well the problem is being dealt with.
