Something is terribly wrong with our schools. How did a place that should be a sanctuary for kids becomes a source of fear and intimidation? What has happened? In Creating Emotionally Safe Schools, Jane Bluestein offers a plan to return schools to havens of nurturing and learning. She examines environmental, historical, developmental, psychological, sociological, interpersonal, instructional and administrative factors that contribute to the emotional climate of an educational institution. This is a comprehensive view of what makes a school feel the way it feels, and what we can do to make it feel safe for every child-and every adult-who walks through its doors. Emotional safety has many dimensions, such as: the impact of the family and early development, childhood stress and coping, the changing role of the school, acceptance and emotional support, respect and belonging, temperament and labels, gangs and violence, instructional strategies, learning styles and multiple intelligences, teacher training and support, and the inherent need for a sense of community. The message Jane Bluestein brings is positive: information, programs and solutions are available that can ultimately make our schools inviting, inspiring, and, yes-safe.

As suicide continues to be one of the leading causes of death among children under the age of fourteen, and as recent bullying statistics report a strong connection between bullying, being bullied, and suicide, it is time for society to set aside its obsession with grade-level benchmarks, test scores, and Blue Ribbon Schools, and instead demand that our students achieve the academic successes they deserve by ensuring that they are educated in schools that are intellectually, socially, and emotionally safe. In Safe Hands: Bullying Prevention With Compassion for All is a hands-on blueprint to helping schools, parents, and the community at large address and solve the problem of bullying. This compelling examination of bullying includes real life examples and activities for implementation. The fact that the program introduced in this book was developed not in response to the obvious and increasing need for bullying prevention and intervention in schools, but merely as a model of how all schools can educate children in safe educational environments is what differentiates this book from other bullying prevention books on the market today."
