"School Bullying comes at a time of increasing concern about the harmful effects of bullying on children's and young people's health and the increasing awareness on the right of children to be protected from bullying. This well written and engaging book presents a comprehensive guide for educators in understanding, preventing and stopping school bullying. It is very well researched, and one of its major strengths is the way it translates research and theory into accessible and practical suggestions for educators and practitioners in preventing and stopping bullying in schools. Each chapter includes practical activities like Points for reflection, Trends and issues, and Ideas for schools and classroom, and closes with Guidelines for school practice, What the reader has learned, an activity and list of references. The book takes also a systemic perspective complimented by a strengths based approach, underling the benefits of prosocial and harmonious relationships as the antithesis to bullying. This book is an ideal text for initial teacher education courses on the promotion of mental health and healthy relationships and prevention of school bullying. It should find its way in every school library as a practical and accessible reference for school leaders, teachers, educators, and other mental health practitioners. This is THE book for anyone who wants a comprehensive, balanced, accessible, well researched but practical guide on school bullying." - Prof Carmel Cefai, Director Centre for Resilience and Socio-Emotional Health, University of Malta
