Bullying: Effective Strategies for Long Term Improvement tackles the sensitive issue of bullying in schools and offers practical guidance on how to deal successfully with the issue in the long term. The authors examine how bullying begins, the impact of bullying on the victimised child, and how the extent of bullying in schools can be reliably measured and assessed. They go on to explain how to set up anti-bullying initiatives which will maintain their effectiveness over the years. The complexity of the bullying process is emphasised throughout, but care is taken to outline clearly the actions that can be taken which will substantially reduce bullying in the long term. The book is an outcome of over 10 years research into bullying. The authors draw on their own major studies and international research to provide real workable solutions to the problem of bullying, which are illustrated by case study examples throughout. The book is essential reading for school managers, teachers, student teachers and researchers determined to tackle the issues of bullying head on.

There has been an increasing awareness over the past few decades of bullying and the effect it has on the educational and social achievements of children and young people. The Committee's report examines the progress that has been made to address this problem since the introduction of the 'Don't Suffer in Silence' pack in 1994, the barriers that prevent schools from tackling bullying effectively, issues of prejudice-driven bullying including SEN-related, homophobic and faith-based bullying, and cyber-bullying. The report finds that defining what bullying is and identifying instances of bullying is the first potential barrier to successfully tackling the problem. Teachers and staff, pupils and parents should all be aware of their school's definition of bullying and how this affects their own behaviour, with the attitude and engagement of head teachers vital to tackling bullying. The focus of anti-bullying guidance should be tackling bullying behaviour and making it clear that such behaviour is not acceptable, rather than attempting to change the behaviour of the victim. The DfES should issue new guidance to local authorities and schools on when the use of exclusion is appropriate. The lack of accurate reliable data on bullying is another barrier to more effective anti-bullying work, and the Government should commission a long-term study of a number of schools, looking at both general trends in bullying and also the effectiveness of different approaches in different circumstances. The report also recommends that the Government needs to foster a culture where schools are encouraged to be open about incidents of bullying, have effective ways of dealing with bullying when it occurs and provide support the victims of bullying, rather than fearing reporting incidents of bullying will damage their reputation.

Early intervention (EI) is the single most important advance in mental health care in recent decades, representing a key shift in both theoretical standpoint and service delivery. Early Intervention in Psychiatry clearly describes best practice for extending this approach to all psychiatric disorders. Beginning with the rationale for EI, it informs interventions in people from all age groups across the lifespan, from perinatal to old age. It addresses EI in specific settings, such as primary health care, community health, the general hospital, non-government agencies, and in social movements, and for specific disorders including depression and anxiety, alcohol and substance use, childhood disorders, psychoses, bipolar disorders, eating disorders and borderline personality disorders. Early Intervention in Psychiatry is an essential guide for all psychiatrists, general practitioners, family physicians and public health doctors. It is also a valuable resource for mental health professionals and primary care colleagues, including nurses, social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists, vocational rehabilitation specialists, peer and support workers and for mental health commissioners and policy-makers.
