About the Author

Cindy Miller, LCSW, is a psychotherapist, school social worker, educator, and parent consultant. In addition to her private practice, she counsels children, adolescents, and families for the Paramus, New Jersey, Public School District and consults with administrators and faculty on multiple issues. She is an adjunct instructor in Sociology at Bergen Community College. She received her Master's degree in Social Work from Columbia University.

Cynthia Lowen is the co-creator, producer, and writer of Bully, a feature documentary film following five kids and families through "a year in the life" of America's bullying crisis. Following the film's 2011 premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, it was acquired by The Weinstein Company and will be released in theatres nationwide in March 2012. Bully has been received with acclaim at festivals, winning the Brizzolara Family Foundation Award for films about conflict and resolution at the Hamptons Film Festival, and at the Bergen Film Festival it was awarded the Youth Jury Award. In anticipation of the impact Bully will have in catalyzing national change on this issue, the film's director, Lee Hirsch, was featured on Anderson Cooper's Town Hall on Bullying this past fall on CNN, as well as The Dr. Phil Show. In addition, Cynthia has presented the film in panels at the World Wide Conference on Human Values featuring the Dalai Lama, Silverdocs, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Cynthia is also an award-winning writer and the recipient of the Discovery Prize. Her work has been selected for inclusion in Best New Poets 2008, and she has been awarded a fellowship to the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts; the Campbell Corner Prize; and the Tin House/Summer Literary Seminars Kenya Prize, among other honors. Her work has been published widely in journals, including A Public Space, Boston Review, Inkwell, Provincetown Arts, and Tin House, among others. From 2001 to 2006 she served as an editor at Four Way Books, and is currently developing a narrative drama series for television about the making of the atomic bomb.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish I had this book when my children were young - it contains so many tips to help you know if your child may be suffering in a bullying situation, and how to deal with it (or to recognize whether your child shows signs of participating in bullying him/herself). Included in this comprehensive guide are questions we should be asking our children, signs to look for, and discussion points to help them be in a position to take a stand mentally and emotionally before they find themselves in a bullying situation (and much more information for parents and anyone working with children). If they are a target of bullying, what should they do, and what are some ways to prevent negative impact to their self-esteem? If they witness bullying, how will they act and what will be the consequences for everyone involved? What should WE be saying, doing and looking for? The book contains TONS of information, but it's organized in a way that makes it very easy to use. A great tool for teachers and parents - READ it to know what to look for, and KEEP as a trouble-shooting/reference guide.

I am taking a graduate class on bullying and this is one of our texts. Easy to read, well organized, and not afraid to say bold statements about the effects of current media and entertainment on our children and our behavior! The "extras" throughout the book add a nice touch: definitions, parent pointers, community watch, and bully buster tips.
The book is divided into four parts: 1. 21st Century Bullying, 2. Prevention, 3. Intervention, & 4. Moving Beyond the Triangle.
An excellent book that I will keep in my personal library!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Barbara on September 19, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book will help parents and teachers learn so much about bullying, the signs of a victim, the signs of the perpetrator, and how to be proactive about a bullying situation. It covers every aspect of the problem, and it should be in every library, every school, and must reading for parents of all-age children. The timing for this book is perfect considering that October is bully awareness month, and so many school systems are making bullying issues a centerpiece of focus.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has a lot of useful information in it that will help educators, parents, and communities understand the problem of bullying, especially cyberbullying, and the best course for eliminating this problem within our society. This book used in conjunction with Barbara Coloroso's, "The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander:...," addresses every issue on bullying; what it is, what it looks like, and how to correct the problem within our educational system and society today. These two books will open the reader's eyes to how our culture views bullying and how we need to change that perspective if we as a society want to eliminate this problem among our school-aged children. Well worth the read!

Surprisingly well presented, the author avoids political correctness and sloganism in exchange for facts and penetrating analysis. I read this as part of a course for continuing education credits for social workers, only to be surprised how I could not put it down. Young parents who love their children and have a desire to become overprotective would do well to see what can become of a child who is not allowed to learn how to negotiate some of the social interactions with peers, opening themselves up to later bullying. The book avoids hysterics and 'rallying cry' mentality, instead opting for well researched data and strong conclusions. Well written.
