This confidence-boosting book aims to help children overcome the damaging effects of teasing and bullying, and to develop practical skills and attitudes to improve their self-esteem and quality of life.
This revised edition of Bully Blocking (originally published under the title Bully Busting) is based on Evelyn Field's 'Secrets of relating', a six-step model that has proved highly successful in her counselling work with young people. The first part of the book helps parents understand what happens when their children are bullied and provides useful approaches for changing the attitude of children who may feel there is no hope. The second part provides a programme of activities with an emphasis on fun, helping children to understand their feelings and develop effective methods of counteracting bullying situations, including improving self-esteem, building support networks and communicating confidently.
This book will be an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, educators and counsellors working with children at risk of or experiencing bullying.
