School bullying is one of the fastest growing problems in schools today. Research has shown that 15 percent of children in both primary and secondary school environments have been involved in bullying incidences, as either a bully or a victim. Bullying at School: What We Know and What We Can Do is an important read for the teachers, principals, and other education professionals that are responsible for preventing and responding to bullying at school.  Renowned  author Dan Olweus, a professor of psychology and leading researcher in the field, has conducted authoritative, large-scale studies about bullying, from which he has ascertained critical facts about bullying and insight into its causes and consequences.

From the basis of this research, Olweus has developed a scientifically evaluated intervention program that has been demonstrated to 

  • Reduce bully/victim problems by 50 percent or more
  • Substantially decrease antisocial behaviors such as vandalism, theft, substance abuse and truancy 
  • Improve the “social climate” of the classroom and increase student satisfaction with school life

The book lays out the author's findings and whole-school approach to preventing and stoping bullying in four parts:

  • An overview about what is known about bully/victim problems among school children
  • How bully/victim problems can be addressed and counteracted in the school and in the classroom
  • The effects of the author’s intervention program
  • Practical advice and an anti-bullying program for intervention

Additionally, this book contains a valuable guide to help parents and teachers recognize if a child is being bullied or is bullying others. An essential resource for all educators!
