“As the mental health needs of students are increasingly brought into the spotlight, bullying behaviors remain alive and well, placing our most vulnerable students at substantial risk. Fortunately, Collins and Harlacher have created a research-based, comprehensive, and practical model to help practitioners and educators find sure footing within a rapidly changing landscape. The illustrative examples and clearly defined processes make this book current and accessible to a variety of potential readers. I recommend it to professionals in any district or school seeking to develop or rewrite their student support policies.”

—Justin Gaddis, PhD, LP, Executive Director, Health Services and Well-Being, Fort Worth Independent School District, Texas

“Collins and Harlacher recognized that available bullying prevention approaches were fragmented, often neglecting one or more components. This book combines key elements of social and emotional learning, school climate, and multi-tiered systems of support—while also providing clear guidance about curricula to use, partnerships to build, data-based decision making, and implementation. It provides a turnkey solution for districts and individual schools, and is replete with practical examples, templates to follow, and checklists to make sure you are on track with your efforts. Whether you are completely revamping your policies and programming, or simply looking to see more results, the knowledge and strategies you need are in this book.”

—Sameer Hinduja, PhD, Co-Director, Cyberbullying Research Center; School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Florida Atlantic University

Thedefinitive book on bullying prevention and intervention. Every school, state department of education, and graduate training program in education and psychology should make this book required reading....Bullying reflects a breakdown in healthy relationships, and the tools needed to ameliorate these behaviors are found in this book. It is a comprehensive road map for creating systems that promote healthy relationships and providing systemic change to stop bullying in schools.”

—from the Foreword by Susan M. Swearer, PhD, LP, Chair, Department of Educational Psychology, and Willa Cather Professor of School Psychology, University of Nebraska–Lincoln; Co-Director, Bullying Research Network

“It is widely known that bullying prevention is a critical component for safe and inclusive schools, but if you are looking for howto prevent bullying, this book is for you. The authors spell it all out, translating research into practice and saving readers hours of potential time lost on common pitfalls and ineffective strategies. I plan to share takeaways from this book with my school leadership and social–emotional learning teams, which not only will lead to improved bullying prevention efforts, but also will advance our systemic practices in teaming, data-based problem solving, and parent and community partnerships.”

—Julia Wigert, EdS, NCSP, school psychologist, Denver Public Schools
