Handbook on Bullying Prevention
A Life Course Perspective
Catherine P. Bradshaw
ISBN: 978-0-87101-500-6. 2017. Item #5006. 296 pages.
Book Type:

Bullying is a topic that has raised major concern for our nation, so much, that all states have passed policies that specifically address this issue. This problem is very common among youth and adults, and has the potential to have long-term effects. In the Handbook on Bullying Prevention: A Life Course Perspective, chapter authors provide recommendations for prevention and early intervention in bullying situations involving youth and adults across the life course.

There are very few books specifically written about bullying across the life course, and this handbook focuses on understanding causes and consequences, as well as prevention, in several different settings, not just schools. This handbook is intended to serve as a "go-to" resource to bring awareness and provide effective strategies for stemming the harmful impacts of bullying. Handbook on Bullying Prevention is a helpful guide for social workers, mental health clinicians, practitioners, researchers, and educators.
