As a middle school philosophy college instructor, I find that Banishing Bullying Behavior is a must-read for ALL future teachers. From the explanation of bullying, to the lessons on how we in the classroom can help and intercede, this book gives the responses any parent, child, or teacher would want. Bullying behavior is sadly a challenging problem in today's schools, and with Fried's and Sosland's frank and encouraging material, the end could be in sight. (Philip H.

In their book, SuEllen Fried and Blanche Sosland challenge our thinking while sharing new learning and strategies for addressing the bullying disorder. The book is essential reading for all who work with students.
