The American Public Health Association is scheduled to release, “A Public Health Approach to Bullying Prevention”, co-edited by myself, Matt Masiello, MD, MPH, and Diana Schroeder, MSN, RN. This book highlights our evidence-based approach to bullying prevention and was written with educators, pediatricians, legislators, and community members in mind.
Given the increasing burden of bullying in our United States schools, we assembled a team of 16 co-authors who are experts in the areas of bullying prevention and school-based health promotion. Together, we have created a comprehensive book that includes information about the consequences of school-based bullying from the perspectives of physical, mental, and public health, how best to implement, evaluate, and sustain an evidence-based bullying prevention program, school legislation, school climate, the cost benefit of bullying prevention, capacity building, and practical implications for school administrators.
