New Bullying Book
We had a great inaugural event today, and Betsy is a simply wonderful speaker. While Betsy was here, she mentioned a book on bullying that has impressed her.
Help! I'm Being Bullied
Dr. Emily Lovegrove
Betsy said this book is primarily for teens and their parents, with alternating chapters written for each audience. It offers a range of strategies, with memory aids to help pull the ideas out when you need them.
While the book is strategies that are independent of the source of the type of bullying, Dr. Lovegrove's primary research and clinical experience has been with children with facial difference. Here is the research behind the book.
Lovegrove E, Rumsey N. Ignoring it doesn't make it stop: adolescents, appearance, and bullying. Cleft Palate Craniofac J. 2005 Jan;42(1):33-44. PMID: 15643925. Abstract
