Preventing and Treating Bullying and Victimization

JAMA. 2010;304(20):2301. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.1731

Children, teens, parents, school staff, law enforcement officials, pediatricians, and mental health practitioners are all aware of the importance of better understanding and addressing bully-victim problems. The editors of and contributors to Preventing and Treating Bullying and Victimization have provided a valuable service by compiling the available research into a single volume. In the book's 3 sections—“Theoretical Perspectives,” “Assessment and Intervention,” and “Recommendations for Policy, Practice, and Research”—multiple lines of research are presented, integrated, and developed into recommendations for evidence-informed interventions and future research.
