Afttig, Michelle
Bully-Be-Gone is book three in the Annie Books Series. The Windy Day with Annie, Calming the Stormy Days with Annie, and Bully-Be-Gone with Annie books, are a wonderful, non-threatening way, to introduce the topic of distractability and attention deficits to a young child and to introduce social skills training . So many times, my young attention deficit children respond, "I don't like her (Annie). She is bad." When prompted as to why they think she is bad, inevitably the response is, "Because she just daydreams. She is bad." In Bully-Be-Gone, Annie describes her feelings and emotions about bullies and the Bully-Be-Gone Plan, which includes social skills and avoiding being bullied.

Coloroso, Barbara
It's a deadly triad: bullies who terrorize, bullied kids who are afraid to tell, bystanders who watch, participate, or look away, and adults who dismiss the incidents as a normal part of childhood. Drawing on her decades of work with youth, this practical book by bestselling parenting educator Barbara Coloroso explains the three kinds of bullying; and the differences between boy and girl bullies; four abilities that protect your child from succumbing to bullying; seven steps to take if your child is a bully; how to help the bullied child heal and effectively discipline the bully; how to evaluate a school's antibullying policy and much more.

Davis, Stan
Schools Where Everyone Belongs outlines research on effective bullying prevention interventions and presents specific practices and skills that help schools implement that research.

Dubin, Nick
Writing in an accessible, informal style, the author describes the bullying behavior he and other individuals have experienced, and the effect this has had on their lives. He outlines the reasons for bullying behavior and the danger of persistent recurrence if it remains unchecked, as well as the critical importance of "involving the bystander". Nick Dubin goes on to provide a range of effective strategies to address bullies and bullying that can be applied by parents, professionals, schools, and individuals being bullied. He stresses the importance of peer intervention, empathetic teachers, and verbal self-defense, and shows how lack of support, condemning of "tale telling," or even blaming the victim reinforces bullying. This book offers individuals with AS who are being bullied the opportunity to see that they are not alone, and it is an invaluable source of advice for parents, teachers, professionals and personnel managers.

Heinrichs, Rebekah
Most children and adolescents with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome are victims of bullying at school and in the community. Indeed, some of their unique behaviors and characteristics make many of these children easy targets for chronic, frequent and severe bullying. This book takes an honest look at the different types of bullying and the actions adults must take to curb bullying, thereby helping to prevent the often lifelong effects of this insidious form of behavior on victims. Practical strategies and solutions at the school, class and individual level are presented.

Rigby, Ken
Exploring the wider context of how, when and why bullying takes place, this new book will enable professionals to coordinate their work to tackle the problem effectively. Ken Rigby looks at the implications of his own extensive research into bullying in different countries and draws on the most recent ideas in the field. He shows how bullying is not just a preserve of schools, and occurs beyond childhood, for example in the workplace and at home. This broader perspective enables Rigby to explore the key contributing factors. These include the personalities of bullies and victims; the influence of family; peer pressure and victimization; the role of gender and culture; and children's and adult's attitudes toward, and perceptions of, bullying.
