Early childhood educators will learn ways to help children build resilience, self-regulation, and self-competence using this sensitive, supportive, and practical guide.

There is not an educator in America today for whom bullying is not a concern and bullying prevention is not a responsibility. Educators need to know bullying facts and trends, what their legal and professional responsibilities are, and research-based best practices for responding to and preventing bullying. Furthermore, educators must recognize the fundamental importance of a positive school climate—an environment where all members of the school community feel safe, supported, and respected— and must know how to promote the the values and behaviors that contribute to such a climate. The Bullying Prevention Book of Lists offers all this and more in a convenient, accessible format. Designed to provide school administrators, teachers, and support staff with quick access to key information and practical strategies, this book is an invaluable tool for any K-12 school.
