Book Description:
Violence and the threat of violence in schools are legitimate concerns for researchers and educators wishing to create safe and productive learning environments for all students. "Appraisal and Prediction of School Violence: Methods, Issues, and Contexts," edited by Michael Furlong, Michael Bates, Douglas Smith, and Paul Kingery, provides up-to-date information about best practices for understanding, predicting, and preventing violence on school campuses. In addition to providing in-depth coverage of approaches to assessing threats of violence in schools, the book covers important related topics such as bullying in schools, anger and hostility among students, discipline strategies, weapon possession, crisis preparation and response, and diversity and disability issues related to school safety. The book is essential reading for researchers, school administrators, counselors, psychologists, and other school personnel who are working to reduce the incidence of school violence in a manner that supports positive student development.
