The ABC’s of Bullying Prevention: A Comprehensive Schoolwide Approach
By Dr. Kenneth Shore
In the book The ABC’s of Bullying Prevention (National Professional Resources, 2011), school psychologist and therapist Dr. Kenneth Shore examines the often devastating societal problem of bullying in our nation’s schools.
In order to make meaningful and lasting progress in preventing incidents of bullying, schools need to implement school-wide anti-bullying programs in which staff, students and parents are all committed participants. This type of wide-ranging bullying prevention program, which addresses school climate and culture, has been found to be most effective way of significantly reducing school bullying, making schools safer for all children.
The book consists of nine chapters, organized as follows:
- Bullying: An Overview (understanding bullying; forms of bullying; effects of bullying; bullying myths; signs of bullying; understanding the bully, the victim, and the bystander),
- Cyberbullying (new to the 2011 revised edition)
- A comprehensive program to prevent bullying (step-by-step guidance on building an effective program)
- The roles of the school administrator
- The role of the teacher
- The role of the paraprofessional or teacher aide
- The role of the parents
- Bullying: A Call to Action
- Bullying Resources
