This comprehensive collection of essays provides a series of highly practical guidelines which schools can implement themselves. Step-by-step advice is given on developing a whole-school policy which is generally seen as the essential nucleus of effective action. The book also suggests methods for tackling bullying through classroom and curriculum activities, including video, drama, and the use of quality circles and of working with pupils involved in bullying situations. Emphasis is placed on assertiveness training for pupils who may be bullied, and non-punitive work with pupils who bully others. As the majority of bullying takes place in playgrounds, the book includes innovative sections on training lunchtime supervisors, enhancing playground activities, and improving the playground environment.

Review quote

"These two excellent companion volumes, based on research work in Sheffield, provide an invaluable source of information on international research findings about bullying and on intervention strategies which have been tried and tested in both primary and secondary schools. Together they make essential reading for all those concerned with this pervasive problem which exist in most, if not all, schools in Britain."-Times Educational Supplement, UK
