Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is grounded in an essential truth to reduce bullying and other forms of social aggression, we have to get to the bystanders. Stan Davis provides excellent insight into the motivations and behaviors of bystanders and effective strategies to support, motivate, and ultimately empower them to take responsibility for the well-being of others and their social environment. --Nancy E. Willard, MS, JD, author of Cyberbullying and Cyberthreats

With Empowering Bystanders in Bullying Prevention, Stan Davis has distinguished himself as a leading expert in the field of violence prevention taking bullying prevention to new heights. This important new book will show both researchers and practitioners how kids can become genuinely empathic, with skills to help them express that empathy. If all schools adopted the well-documented program Davis has created, we would live in a much safer and more compassionate world. --Myrna B. Shure, Ph.D., author of the I Can Problem Solve series

Format: Perfect Paperback
This book reflects a wealth of hands on experience doing the work that makes safe, fair and responsive schools a possibility for everyone. It is a very "how to" book. It really is a great package of practical suggestions that educators can use as seeds for change in their own schools. One of the strengths of the book is that it encourages people to expand on the ideas presented and make them "personal " to their own school. This book fills avoid in the bullying prevention literature. Bravo Mr. Davis!

Empowering Bystanders In Bullying Prevention, Stan Davis's follow-up to Schools Where Everyone Belongs, is an invaluable resource for creating and maintaining a safer social and learning environment for elementary and middle school students. It provides a practical blueprint of tried and true techniques (including specific lesson plans) for empowering bystanders and building empathy and problem-solving skills among children. This is a must-read for K-8 educators, administrators, and counseling professionals everywhere. I highly recommend it!

Stan Davis' book is helping us make a culture shift at my school. Through following the pathway that Stan provides - which includes thoughtful professional discussions, we are becoming more unified. We share a common definition for bullying, and more importantly a common plan in addressing the behavior. The student response has been positive in part because they have been part of the process. This book was well worth the investment.

a great resource for stopping bullying. Well written and covers the bystanders--an often overlooked resource in stopping these tactics. Stan also includes some information on magic tools to help get the message across. Magic is a great way to teach children (and adults) important ideas.
