New Perspectives on Bullying by Helen Cowie
Book Description"This book provides a useful round-up of studies that help the reader understand what constitutes bullying (a much-debated point), the characteristics of bullies and children who are targeted, patterns of behaviour and common outcomes for the children involved, as well as what inhibits many schools from formulating effective policy." Children & Young People Now What is bullying? What can we learn from research findings? What are the risk factors for bullying or being bullied? How can we take account of the voice of the child? How can educators, policy-makers, health professionals and parents work together with children and young people to prevent and reduce bullying?This book provides a valuable resource for anyone responsible for the emotional health and well-being of children and young people. The authors focus on the importance of fostering positive relationships in the school community as a whole, so that young people and adults feel empowered to challenge bullying when they encounter it and protect those involved. Using case studies of real experiences, innovative practice, key research findings and perspectives from children and young people themselves, the authors provide perceptive insights into the positive ways of relating to others that are essential if we are to address the issue of bullying successfully. The material outlined in the book is directly linked to the new agenda for change in meeting the needs of the child, empowering children to be consulted and to take responsibility for issues that affect them. It explores a range of effective interventions that can counteract bullying - including restorative approaches; peer mediation; narrative approaches; and cyber support. Key features include: Chapter overviews Examples of effective practice Summaries of key research findings Children's views and experiences Learning points at the end of each chapter List of related organisations, websites and resources to support interventions against bullyingPractical guidance based on sound evaluation is provided - as well as an insight into international perspectives on bullying - to help develop a positive school environment and disseminate good practice. New Perspectives on Bullying is an indispensable resource for teachers, researchers, health professionals, social workers and parents.
