Practicable and accessible, it helps us understand what bullying is and how to arrest it or prevent it from happening. The first part of the book provides a clear overview of what we understand about bullying. It is based on up-to-date information from the world's leading experts. The second part tells us how to go about solving the problem of bullying. This includes how to set up a preventative whole schoolanti-bullying programme, how to deal with bullying as it occurs, and how to monitor it so that it doesn't recur.
