Focusing on how technology can facilitate or magnify traditional forms of peer harassment, “Bullying beyond the Schoolyard” paints a vivid picture of online aggression among adolescents by recounting the stories of victims, summarizing current research, and reviewing recent legal rulings. This groundbreaking book also provides proactive prevention and intervention strategies to equip parents, educators, counselors, law enforcement, and other youth-serving adults with the tools necessary to protect students from the negative effects of cyberbullying. Finally, it includes many special features, such as questions for reflection after each chapter, numerous illustrations, and reproducible resource documents to further educate those involved. According to InsideTheSchool.com: “Readers will walk away with enough background knowledge and practical advice to be the cyberbullying authority in their school.”
