Create a safe learning environment so students can achieve!

Bullying is an ongoing concern for students, with as many as half reporting that they have faced aggression or harassment at some point. This updated edition of Breaking the Culture of Bullying and Disrespect provides the tools to successfully respond to bullying and other negative behaviors by creating an environment that discourages negative behavior and encourages greater responsibility and respect.

The authors offer a comprehensive, therapeutic approach, complete with sample transcripts and activities. Instead of using punitive measures, which can model the very behaviors they are trying to eliminate, educators will discover how to establish a cooperative, caring environment and guide students in thinking about positive alternatives to misbehavior. This new edition features:

  1. Updated research, including real-life examples of successful experiences
  2. Additional case studies and a list of problem-solving questions
  3. A new chapter on brain research and how children learn
  4. An all-new section focusing on prevention methods

Empowering, enlightening, and practical, Responding to the Culture of Bullying and Disrespect is a necessary resource for teachers, administrators, and support staff dedicated to promoting respect, tolerance, and responsibility in their schools.
