Bullies Are a Pain in the Brain DVD. Trevor Romain, $44.95 Grades 2-8, 25 minutes

Strategies for helping bullies, targets and bystanders and the secrets for becoming bully-proof!


The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander, 2nd Edition. Barbara Coloroso, CD $19.50

Barbara Coloroso now brings her extensive experience in conflict resolution, parent education and her tremendous passion to the topic of bullying. She argues that the solution is in prevention and that the focus should be on raising confident and resilient children by "teaching them how to think, not just what to think". She discusses hazing, school cliques and the "double whammy" of racist bullying. Responsibility is placed on the parents, schools and communities to take early action with appropriate interventions, not punishment, for the bullies and onlookers, in addition to providing support for the victim. Coloroso also discusses the weakness of "zero tolerance" policies, which might be easy to administer but don't address the deeper issues. The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander is an accessible guide for concerned parents, educators and communities on the topic of bullying and violence that urges us all to take a stand.

In this workshop, Dr. Albano discusses a prescriptive treatment approach to treating school refusal behavior in children. Dr. Albano begins her workshop with a definition of school refusal, and she reviews the four primary reasons underlying school refusal behavior.

The workshop focuses on several strategies (e.g. creating routines, reinforcement procedures, creating contracts, etc.) that have been demonstrated to work for effectively engaging parents and school personnel in a partnership to return the child to full school functioning.
