An international bestseller, Barbara Coloroso’s groundbreaking and trusted guide on bullying—including cyberbullying—arms parents and teachers with real solutions for a problem that affects almost all school age kids. “An extremely helpful book that both parents and teachers can use to deal with bullying.”—Publishers Weekly First published over a decade ago, The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander quickly became the definitive guide to bullying prevention and intervention, providing real solutions for a problem that affects young people all over the world. Now, in this thoroughly updated and expanded book, Coloroso helps you recognize the characteristic triad of bullying: the bully who perpetrates the harm; the bullied, who is the target (and who may become a bully); and the not-so-innocent bystanders—peers or siblings who either watch, participate in the bullying or look away, and adults who see bullying as “teasing,” not tormenting, and as “boys will be boys” or as “ girl drama,” not the predatory aggression that it is. In this book you will learn: What bullying is and what it isn’t The four ways and three means of bullying Technology resources and solutions to deal effectively with both online and offline bullying Seven steps to hold accountable and reform someone who bullies Four abilities that protect young people from succumbing to a bully How young people can stand up, speak out, and take responsibility Drawing on her decades of work with troubled youth and her wide experience with conflict resolution and restorative justice, Barbara Coloroso offers practical and compassionate solutions and gives parents, caregivers, educators and—most of all—young people the tools to break this cycle of violence.

You’re a teacher. You are on the front line every day with your students, and in addition to teaching academic content, you are often the first person to field any number of emotional needs your students may bring into your classroom. That domain is often left to school counselors, social workers, or psychologists, but in the absence of such professionals, or in addition to their expertise, there are simple and concrete tools you can use to help your students learn healthy coping strategies. This book is intended as a resource and is divided into four sections addressing the most common needs you may see in your classroom: grief and loss, bullying, off-task behaviors, and adoption. Each section will give you background information on the topic, practical strategies to use with students, frequently asked questions, and resources. Sample scripts are included for specific examples of conversations to have with kids.
