Synopsis

Teasing, shunning and bullying can have serious detrimental effects on both victim and perpetrator. This edited work comprehensively gathers emerging research, theory and effective practice on this subject in one invaluable source.

Excerpt

Emerging research into areas of peer harassment, bullying, and other forms of student intimidation and threat in schools yields remarkable and deeply disturbing convergences. The chapters in this book represent the latest stages of a wave of groundbreaking work in theory, research, and practice that will influence the direction of both researchers and practitioners for at least the next decade. From our perspective as psychologists involved in school, clinical, and community psychology fields, the focus of this book is long overdue.
