The problem of bullying and teasing among children and adolescents will never be solved until adults address the needs of both the bullies and their victims.

Bullying From Both Sides: Strategic Interventions for Working With Bullies and Victims is one of the first to give direct and specific strategies to teachers on intervening with both aggressive youth and those children targeted for abuse. In an easy-to-read format, author Walter Roberts lays out the basic psychology behind what bullies and victims think and how they behave. He provides specific intervention steps to implement with both groups, including sample scripts to start a positive dialogue toward correcting misbehaviour and beginning the healing process for those who are negatively impacted by bullying actions.

An annotated resource list provides readers with additional books and videos to assist them to ''grow their own'' bullying prevention programs. Teachers, administrators, school counsellors, and related student services personnel will find the book essential in their efforts to reduce school violence.

Foreword by Rosalind Wiseman, author of the bestselling book Queen Bees and Wannabes Preface: Going Upstream Part I. The Reality of Bullying, Bullies, and Victims 1. The Prevalence of Bullying 2. Definitions of Bullying and Teasing 3. Victims 4. Victimiza

'This may be the first book that includes the idea of working with and helping the bully along with the victim. . . . Detailed information provides educators with a plan of action about the problem of bullying. The passion of the author is evident.' Steve Hutton, former elementary school principal 'Clearly reflects considerable effort, knowledge, and expertise. . . . The author introduces many intervention strategies in a manner that is easily understood and can be generalized to many situations.' Diana Joyce 'The book's strengths are its step-wise tactics and strategies for counselors. Readers will respect the author's professional authority; I most certainly do.' Michael Auer 'A must-have resource for anyone dedicated to understanding and ending bullying in schools.' Allan Morotti 'The conventional adult wisdom about bullying-ignore it and it will go away-is faulty advice that sends a dangerous message to children. Roberts's book provides a very useful resource for school counselors who wish to counter that dangerous message in strategic, workable ways.' Counseling Today, October 2006
