About a quarter of all students report being bullied at some time, but for LGBT teens, that percentage is closer to nine out of ten. Whether because of their appearance, their behavior, or simply because their gender orientation or preference becomes known, these teens face verbal, emotional, and physical abuse.
Books about Bullying
With the growth of threats and violence in higher education settings, college campuses are increasingly expected to have systems in place to identify potentially aggressive individuals and intervene to ensure the safety of the campus population.
College and university faculty are asked to serve an increasingly diverse and at-risk population of students. The classroom is now the scene of disruptive and dangerous behaviors that range from speaking out of turn to the misuse of technology to potentially aggressive and threatening behaviors.
This book offers fifteen engaging and accessible case studies that offer practical guidance for residence life staff, conduct officers, campus law enforcement, faculty and administrators to better manage mental health crisis events on campus.
