  • includes basic research data from leaders in the field of bullying and victimization in the United States and Canada
  • teaches practical implications of various types of programs and how to choose and implement one that fits their school ecology.

This text will help your students understand how to prevent bullying behavior and how to select and manage intervention efforts in schools and school districts.
