Groundbreaking books have peered into the psychology of bullying and the cultural climate that - seemingly now more than ever - gives rise to such cruelty and aggression. But few have been able to synthesize what we know into 8 simple, targeted "keys" that equip educators, professionals and parents with practical strategies to tackle the issue head-on. 8 Keys to End Bullying answers that call. Social media bullying - and the recent tragedies stemming from it - has given the widespread problem a new dimension. While no magic cure-all exists, adults can learn and implement all sorts of quick and easy techniques that can make a huge difference in the lives of children. In 8 core strategies, this book lays them out, from establishing meaningful connections with children to creating a positive school climate, addressing cyberbullying, building social emotional competence, reaching out to bullies, empowering bystanders, and much more.
