"Bullying is a term that's being, well, bullied. It's been rendered essentially powerless by being constantly kicked around," writes nationally recognised bullying expert Elizabeth Kandel Englander. In this practical and insightful book, Englander dispels pervasive myths and misconceptions about peer cruelty, bullying, and cyberbullying.

Drawing on her own and others' research, she shows how educators can flag problematic behaviours and frame effective responses. Englander puts a special focus on "gateway" behaviours–those subtle actions that, unchecked, can quickly escalate into more serious misbehaviour–and explores how students perceive their own and their peers' behaviour.

Written in an accessible, conversational tone and informed by careful research, this timely book is an essential guide for educators. Key takeaways include the impact of technology on social behaviour, a framework for responding effectively to bullies–including innovative ideas about the role of social peers–and suggestions for working with parents.

Reviews

"This book is an important read for educators and parents who are seeking a transparent review of bullying and cyberbullying and applicable techniques to effectively address factors associated with bullying and cyberbullying." – M. Wong-Lo, CHOICE

"[Bullying and Cyberbullying] represents a substantial contribution to the bullying literature base for its readability, practical focus, and emphasis on a preventative or universal response to burgeoning behavior problems in the form of peer aggression. Englander's work is a valuable resource to educators, who will likely find it both appealing and efficacious in relation to the time invested in reading this book among competing titles in this genre." – Laura Crothers & Jered B. Kolbert, Teachers College Record
