In the fall of 2013, The American Public Health Association published, “A Public Health Approach to Bullying Prevention,” co-edited by the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention’s Matt Masiello, MD, MPH, and Diana Schroeder, MSN, RN.
Written as a resource for educators, pediatricians, legislators, and community members, the book will highlight our evidence-based approach to bullying prevention.
There’s no doubt that bullying has become a topic of concern in our country’s schools. Parents, teachers, administrators are searching for a valuable resource, based in evidence, from which they can establish guidelines and methods to implement in their school systems.
Because of this need, we assembled a team of 16 co-authors, including 6 members of the CHPDP staff, who are experts in the areas of bullying prevention and school-based health promotion. Together, we 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.
