Author Stan Davis presents school staff with knowledge and skills for empowering student bystanders of bullying and changing schoolwide attitudes toward bullying. He provides a wide range of realistic, safe, and effective options that bystanders can use during or after bullying situations. The approach is both research-based and practical. It provides specific techniques for teaching empathy and social problem solving skills, limiting the rewards of bullying behavior, and building a partnership between students and staff to create a positive and inclusive peer culture. The accompanying DVD features a 50-minute audiovisual presentation. In it, author Stan Davis provides an extensive discussion, accompanied by a slide presentation, to help illustrate and expand on important ideas covered in the book. During the presentation, he provides a detailed overview of the program, cites bullying research, offers suggestions and implementation guidelines, and includes numerous personal observations. The DVD can be used for individual learning, book study groups, or staff in-service training.
