This book posits that multiple perspectives of key school staff (such as teachers, principals, school resource officers, school psychologists and counselors, nurses, and coaches) can provide a deeper understanding of bullying, which remains an immediate and pressing concern in schools today. In turn, the authors suggest how this understanding can lead to the development of more effective prevention and intervention programs. Most texts on this subject have been limited to student and teacher perspectives. By adopting a more comprehensive approach, the authors explore how to combat bullying by drawing from sorely underutilized resources.
