Bullying is serious and potentially has a lasting impact. Young people may feel afraid or ashamed and may even believe they are in some way responsible or helpless to stop it.
We Can Deal with Bullying! debunks these beliefs. The gentle, conversational and supportive text encourages young people to ask for help, maintain self-esteem, develop resilience, manage their reactions and stand united with others against bullying.
Showing different perspectives, We Can Deal with Bullying! exposes bullying for what it really is - all about the bully. Young people can learn to turn the black back onto the bully and hold their heads high, reassured that whatever the outcome there is life after bullying.
Suitable for any age We Can Deal with Bullying! is an important read for all young people,
