Stop bullying in its tracks and promote a sense of belonging in all students. This update takes a closer look at what bullying is, places renewed emphasis on the role (and power) of bystanders, presents a range of new examples and scenarios, and more thoroughly addresses the issues of cyberbullying—including specific technologies, such as Facebook and texting. Readers will find support for teachers, counselors, and supervisors, including ready-to-use PowerPoint presentation for preservice and in-service training. Digital content includes PowerPoint presentation and all reproducible forms, surveys, handouts, and letters to parents and caregivers found in the book.
