Product description

This manual offers a program for educators to use in preventing bullying and other social problems by helping students to understand the importance of support, respect, dignity, and social relationships.The program takes gender, racism, classism, and homophobia into account, and features separate sessions and curriculum for girls and boys. It uses group discussions, games, role-playing, and other activities to help students understand friendships, cliques, popularity, and support systems; gossip, reputations, and double standards; teasing, anger, bullying, and sexual harassment; dating, boundaries, and abusive relationships; self-image, media and culture, and cyberbullying; and eating disorders and body image. The CD contains reproducible forms and handouts. There is no index. Wiseman, who founded a national violence prevention program, is an author who specializes in children, teens, parenting, bullying, social justice, and ethical leadership.
