In Ken Rigby's latest book on bullying in schools, the author, renowned international expert, provides an in-depth, research-based examination of "The Method of Shared Concern." Originally conceived by Swedish psychologist Anatol Pikas, and adapted in line with groundbreaking government-sponsored studies in Australia, The Method of Shared Concern describes the multi-stage process in which suspected bullies and their victims are individually interviewed, and eventually brought together in an effort to reach resolution. Through practical examples and real-world case studies, the book demonstrates how the method can be applied in any school environment as one important way in which cases of bullying can be effectively managed. Guided by a trained practitioner, the students themselves are actively engaged and, rather than being labeled or blamed, they are empowered with a heightened sense of responsibility and empathy toward each other and their school.

This report details the results of an inquiry into the Method of Shared Concern, a non-punitive method of addressing cases of bullying in schools. The method was applied in 17 actual cases of bullying in Australian primary and secondary schools in 2008. Detailed accounts of these cases were obtained, focusing on: what the practitioner did in applying the method, the decisions they made and the outcomes achieved at each stage of the process; how the students involved in the intervention actually reacted; what problems were encountered; reflections of the practitioner and researcher on the applications. The effectiveness of the method was judged according to two criteria: whether application of the method brought about a cessation or reduction in the bullying; the effects on other persons taking part in the interventions process, including those who had participated and the person acting as the practitioner. Recommendations are included in the report.

Bullying is now widely recognised as a serious problem that affects many children in schools. It can take many forms, including direct verbal and physical harassment and indirect forms such as deliberate exclusion and the targeting of individuals using cyber technology. Continual and severe bullying can cause both short term and long term damage, making it difficult for victims to form intimate relationships with others and for habitual bullies to avoid following a delinquent lifestyle and becoming perpetrators of domestic violence. Even though this type of abuse affects many of our school children, Ken Rigby believes there are grounds for optimism. This passionate and motivating book shows that there are ways of reducing the likelihood of bullying occurring in a school and effective ways of tackling cases when they do occur. Using up-to-date studies, Bullying in Schools helps us to understand the nature of bullying and why it so often takes place in schools. Importantly, it examines and evaluates what schools can do to promote more positive peer relationships within the school community and take effective and sustainable action to deal with problems that may arise. Teachers, parents, school leaders, policy makers, and health professionals will find it invaluable and empowering.

Schools and school staff play a critical role in the cognitive, behavioral, emotional, social, and interpersonal development of children and adolescents. This second edition of Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions in Educational Settings teaches readers to think strategically about the individual and plan for effective and specific interventions based on the student’s age, developmental level, and presenting problems. It is written by forward-thinking, established professionals whose writing represents the state-of-the-art in cognitive behavioral interventions in educational settings, and presents evidence-based interventions for a variety of issues commonly seen in schools. Including both innovative and well-established approaches, they offer assessment methods and interventions for a variety of issues and concerns faced by school-aged youth. The use of case studies and session outlines, as well as the balance of theoretical and clinical concerns, enhances this book’s value as a reference for both clinicians and students. New to this edition are topics on cyber-bullying, parent and school consultation, school-wide positive behavioral support, and bipolar disorder. This is the ideal reference for those who wish to select and utilize precise interventions in school settings.

In recent years there have been an increasing number of incidents where children have either perpetrated or been the victims of violence in the schools. Often times the children who perpetrated the violence had been the victims of school bullying. If bullying once was a matter of extorting lunch money from one's peers, it has since escalated into slander, sexual harassment, and violence. And the victims, unable to find relief, become depressed and/or violent in return. Despite all the media attention on recent school tragedies, many of which can be traced to bullied children, there has been little in the way of research-based books toward understanding why and how bullying occurs, the effects on all the individuals involved and the most effective intervention techniques. Summarizing research in education, social, developmental, and counseling psychology, Bullying: Implications for the Classroom examines the personality and background of both those who become bullies and those most likely to become their victims, how families, peers, and schools influence bullying behavior, and the most effective interventions in pre-school, primary and middle schools. Intended for researchers, educators, and professionals in related fields, this book provides an international review of research on bullying. KEY FEATURES: * Presents practical ideas regarding prevention/intervention of bullying * Covers theoretical views of bullying * Provides an international perspective on bullying * Discusses bullying similarities and differences in elementary and middle school * Presents practical ideas regarding prevention/intervention of bullying * Provides an international perspective on bullying * Outlines information regarding bullying during the elementary and middle school years * Covers theoretical views of bullying * Presents new approaches to explaining bullying * Contributing authors include internationally known researchers in the field

The Second Edition of the Handbook of Adolescent Behavioral Problems clarifies the current state of treatment and prevention through comprehensive examinations of mental disorders and dysfunctional behaviors as well as the varied forces affecting their development. New or revised chapters offer a basic framework for approaching mental health concerns in youth and provide the latest information on how conditions (e.g., bipolar disorder, suicidality, and OCD) and behaviors (e.g., sex offenses, gang activities, dating violence, and self-harm) manifest in adolescents. Each chapter offers diagnostic guidance, up-to-date findings on prevalence, biological/genetic aspects, risk and resilience factors, and a practical review of prevention and treatment methods. Best-practice recommendations clearly differentiate among what works, what might work, what doesn't work, and what needs further research across modalities, including pharmacotherapy. Key topics addressed include: Families and adolescent development. Adolescent mental health and the DSM-5. Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder. Autism spectrum disorder. Media and technology addiction. School failure versus school success. Bullying and cyberbullying. The Second Edition of the Handbook of Adolescent Behavior Problems is a must-have reference for researchers, clinicians, allied practitioners and professionals, and graduate students in school and clinical child psychology, education, pediatrics, psychiatry, social work, school counseling, and public health.

`This publication is a valuable and timely contribution to the current investigations into the behaviours of children and young people that impact on their emotional health. The book will serve as a practical guide for schools addressing the problem as they see it, the case studies vividly illustrating situations and behaviours that teachers will readily recognise. This is a well structured book. [It] deserves to be read and can serve as a source of information on how various behaviours have been defined, investigated and addressed. It will be of value to any school, much more than a topical or interesting read but as the basis of an institutional response to a problem seriously affecting educational achievement for individuals and schools. It would particularly serve as a stimulus to in-service training for teachers and support staff' - George Varnava, Young Minds Magazine 'Each of the authors has considerable relevant expertise so the text is rich both in research data and examples, including case studies, from their experience. Readers will find a wealth of practical advice and encouragement that is balanced by the acknowledgement of the limitations of individual interventions and the potential costs, overt and hidden, of each one. A whole-school approach is advocated and exemplified, including schools that have considered the needs of the staff' - Child and Adolescent Mental Health `This work would be of use throughout all age ranges as the different problems and strategies are very easily accessible with a lot of proven, practical support. Professor Cowie and her colleagues have produced a valuable tool for use in all schools on both micro and macro level' - Education Review `The book is an impressive and useful handbook of advice and resources. More than that, because it presents so much evidence, it's able to show, rather than tell, how schools can improve life for their pupils and teachers' - Gerald Haigh, TES Friday Magazine `This book is recommended for the wealth of practical information it contains about strategies that can help young people in distress' - Youth Studies Australia Secondary school is the place where young people are most constrained, observed and challenged to develop. This is not necessarily a stress free process, either for the young person, or for teachers and parents. This book describes behaviours, both disruptive and secretive, which indicates emotional distress. It looks at both the risk factors and the protective factors involved in emotional health, and addresses the impact of issues such as bullying, social exclusion, loss and bereavement. The authors show what schools can do to develop practices grounded in knowledge about the mental health issues which relate to young people. In an accessible way, they present a range of strategies which practitioners have shown to be effective. They focus especially on methods and policies, which have been scientifically evaluated, or which are considered best practice. Issues and interventions are illustrated throughout with case studies drawn from the authors' own practice and experience. Each of the authors has a long-standing interest in ways of creating supportive environments to prevent distress and to facilitate resilience in the young. This book is essential reading for secondary school teachers, educational psychologists, education welfare officers and all those with pastoral care responsibilities.
