Teaching an Incompatible Response to Bullying : Other Attempts to Decrease Bullying in the School Have Been Training Children on How to Avoid Bullying or Punishing Those Who Do Bully. This Book Teaches Behaviors That Interfere with Bullying. and It All Takes Place in the Schools.
Bullying has been the dark cloud hanging over education in recent years, and the methods being used to attack the issue have failed to produce any lasting results-until now. "Teaching an Incompatible Response to Bullying" presents an ingeniously simple technique that has proven capable of not only suppressing bullying behavior but also improving the overall emotional well-being of students. Focusing on elementary school education, author and psychology professor Dr. John N. Marr lays out a plan for teaching positive reinforcement that is then practiced peer-to-peer among the students. The incompatible response method posits that behaving in certain ways makes other behaviors impossible; for instance, if kids are encouraging one another, they can't at the same time be harming one another. Grounding theory in real-life experience, this guide includes responses from educators who have implemented this technique and shares kids' reactions to the process, as well. Exposing and punishing bullying has not solved the issue of violence in our schools. But by building students up across the board, it is possible to create educational environs that will eventually be barren of bullying behavior.
