Positive Relations @ School (& Elsewhere)

Legal Ramifications & Positive Strategies to Address Bullying & Harassment

Positive Relations @ School (& Elsewhere) is my new book that provides guidance to schools on how to reduce bullying and harassment and limit its harmful effects in a manner that will both effectively address the well-being of students and assist schools from avoiding litigation and civil rights enforcement actions.

I have spent the last 3-4 years focusing on a significant concern: What schools are doing to reduce bullying is not working. The national data shows that the rate of bullying has not declined for a decade. The problem is that the approach schools have been advised or required to use will not work. This report outlines the challenges and positive strategies to move forward.
