Bullying in schools

The book “Bullying in Schools” draws from Ken Rigby’s research that examined the responses of over 20,000 students who described bullying in their schools. Rigby, who has over 20 years of experience as a teacher and currently works as a professor at the University of South Australia, offers suggestions for tackling bullying with strategies for identifying bullies and victims, methods to diffuse potential problems, ways to enhance the self-esteem of bullied students, and approaches for dealing with bullies to raise the bully’s awareness of their actions.

Mike Eslea, a senior lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire (UK), reviewed “Bullying in Schools” and argues that the book is a great resource for parents, teachers, students, and even children. Eslea said that Rigby does a great job breaking down complicated issues so they are more easily understood, while still retaining the important information. All in all, the book is a popular read and has been cited by hundreds of authors and scholars.
