About the Author:

Stan Davis has worked for human rights in many different ways. In the 1960s he marched with Dr. King in the South and worked for civil rights in the North. Since 1969 he has worked as a family and child therapist with abused and grieving children and trained child protective workers and other helping professionals. He designed and implemented training for a network of rape crisis centers and helped police develop effective interventions for domestic abuse. In the 1980s he became a school counselor. Since the mid-1990s he has focused his energies on helping schools prevent bullying. Stan has trained school staff all over the United States. His strategies are part of statewide initiatives in Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia. Stan s work has been featured in national newspaper and radio articles and on a special 20/20 report on bullying with John Stossel. Stan has a B.A. in psychology from Brown University and is certified as a social worker and a school counselor.

Review:

Now in an updated second edition, Schools Where Everyone Belongs demystifies what bullying is and common myths about its effects, what doesn't work to combat it, and most importantly of all, classroom-tested methods that do work to stop bullying and reverse its harmful effects. --Midwest Book Review

Throughout the book, theories drawn from research are illustrated by and supported with anecdotes from Davis' own experiences as a therapist, counselor, and program facilitator. Each chapter begins with a relevant quote from another author on the topic, and concludes with suggestions for further reading. Chapters are concise and to the point, with key ideas presented in shaded boxes next to the main text. --Erin Smith Hill, New York School Psychologist

Take the theoretical work of Dorothea Ross and Daniel Olweus, mix in some quality curricula on bullying, and add two decades of practice wisdom, and you will have a highly useful resource in this new book on bullying. . . . This book is easy to read, well researched, and filled with bits of knowledge that practitioners with varying degrees of experience will appreciate. --Lynn Merlone, Connections, New Hampshire School Counselor Newsletter
