Description

Bully Blocking offers practical advice to help children (aged 4 - 16) deal with bullies who tease, exclude, intimidate or harass. In this book renowned bullying specialist Evelyn Field provides parents and teachers with understandings and tested approaches to assist a child who is a target or a bully. Importantly, this book shows how the attitudes of both bullies and their targets can be transformed to ensure that their self-destructive behaviour does not carry on into the future. The Six Secrets of Relating, the core of the book, show children how to: Understand their feelings, Realise why they are being bullied or teased (or why they bully others), Build their self-esteem, Become confident communicators, Create a 'power pack' of helpful skills, and Develop a support network. Bully Blocking, a fully revised edition of the highly successful Bullybusting, includes a chapter on what schools can do about bullying and a supplement to help teachers apply the book's practical exercises and activities in the classroom. From the author: 'Many of the stories and ideas are designed to bring a smile to the child's face. Once children can smile, they are better equipped to change their attitude, and consequently, what they do. When they have mastered the skills presented in this book, they can learn how to apply them in other areas of their lives. This is a real bonus. Then you and your family can watch shy, scared, frustrated, abusive or powerless youngsters become happier and enjoy their social life.'
