“Every teacher, school leader, and mental health professional working in schools needs to have a copy of this book. Drs. Bradshaw and Waasdorp skillfully integrate the most current research on bullying with practical, easy-to-use strategies for educators. Most bullying programs focus on the bully, but this book unpacks the roles of all participants, and provides essential strategies to use with bystanders and victims, as well as bullies.“

Virginia L. Dolan, Ed.D, NCSP, Psychotherapist, Coordinator of Behavioral Interventions and Supports (recently retired), Anne Arundel County Public School System


“This is the best book written about practical research-based approaches to prevent and address bullying behaviors. It should be shared with all teachers and school administrators as part of their pre-service and in-service professional development to promote the social and emotional learning of young people. Teachers who apply these strategies will reduce bullying and improve the school experiences of their students. “

—Roger P. Weissberg, PhD, UIC Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chief Knowledge Officer, Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning


Nearly a third of students are directly involved in bullying by the time they graduate from high school.

A range of strategies have been shown to improve peer interactions and reduce bullying behaviors. Yet many teachers struggle to detect bullying and to respond to it effectively. This book is a much- needed guide to evidence-based methods for prevention and intervention in K–12 classrooms.
