Banishing Bullying Behavior: A Call to Action from Early Childhood through Senior Adulthood is just that, a call for each of us to take much needed action to stop the growing epidemic of bullying by people of all ages. This book is an in depth exploration of the various types of bullying: physical, verbal, emotional, cyber bullying and electronic bullying and the devastating, lifelong effect they have on their victims. In order to give the reader a clear understanding of the continuum of bullying behavior, Sosland presents the experiences shared by individuals of all ages in all stages of their lives. Many of these individuals came to the author with their stories when they heard she was writing this book “to spare others the enormous pain bullying had caused them”. The serious and often tragic topic of cyber bullying and bullycide, often suicide by teens who have been bullied until they can no longer endure the pain, is discussed by parents as well as professionals. Cyber bullying is presented at all stages of peer abuse. Much has been reported and written about childhood bullying but it has become clear that students identified as bullies in third grade were bullies into adulthood. This book explores their behavior in the workplace and senior adulthood. It is estimated that approximately fifty percent of the students who are bullies in school are bullied at home either by a parent or sibling. The parent who bullies at home probably is also a bully in the workplace. The author presents an overview of workplace bullying and an in-depth look at bullying in the fields of medicine, law and academia. At the end of an interview with a professional who described twenty-one years as the target of a number of different bullies in one organization Sosland asked why she stayed that in that job such a long time. She responded that she loved her job, believes that her organization was doing important work and therefore was willing to put up the negative workplace environment. The book also presents advice on how to experience positive, healthy workplace experiences. A chapter devoted to the efficacy of leadership includes a discussion of healthy workplaces. Another chapter covers the topic of the enormous power of kindness. It addresses the role of modeling and teaching kindness as an important component of the solution to the bullying problem. This book concludes with model responses to the “Call to Action” with descriptions of several organizations responses. It includes guidelines for individual and group responses.
