Bullying in Schools

Front Cover

Trentham, 1989 - Education - 117 pages
Bullying involves some three-quarters of a million children in the United Kingdom. For many victims the misery extends over many years and affects every day of their lives. Most people are aware of bullying yet the subject has been strangely ignored. This, the first major book devoted to bullying examines these questions: What is bullying? How does it happen? Who is likely to be involved? Where does it take place? What are the causes? And what can be done about it? The solutions offered independently by the contributors challenge the stereotype assumptions about bullies and victims and are essentially practical, suggesting strategies for establishing an ethos by which schools can become safe places for pupils, parents and teachers.
