'It's been over a decade since I sat down in a small back bedroom in Somerset and wrote this book. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to work with literally thousands of people in the world of education. Through all these experiences, I've picked up loads more great ideas about how to manage behaviour. I've also gained an insight into what works in different settings, with different young people, and for different kinds of staff. The basic tenets of this book remain faithful to the original. What I've done though is adapt and develop the ideas so that they apply to more practitioners, in more diverse situations: to those working in early years and further education, as well as primary and secondary schools. And for those of you working in the most challenging schools or colleges, I've included a new section on coping in really difficult circumstances. I've also taken advantage of new developments in the world of technology. So, there's a companion website offering you extra material, links and ideas.' Sue Cowley

Extreme bullying can have devastating effects: it can leave a child severely traumatized, their self-esteem destroyed, and in deep despair. Many children who have been severely bullied are unable to attend school, and are deeply scarred by what has happened. This book reveals these shattering effects by telling the stories of eight children who have experienced extreme bullying and then found their way to recovery at a Red Balloon Learner Centre – a place where children can go to continue their education and recover their self-esteem, confidence and feelings of self-worth. Their stories also act to highlight common issues which often lie behind bullying behaviour such as weight, sexuality, race and religion. Guidance is given on what teachers and parents can do to help a child who is being bullied or a child who uses bullying behaviour, and what the bullied children themselves can do. Also included is a section on understanding bullying behaviour – how to read the signs, why some children may be targeted, what forms it can take, and why children often remain silent. This moving moving and insightful book is essential reading for all those who have encountered bullying: for parents and teachers, those who have been or are being bullied, and for those who do the bullying and their families.
