And words can hurt forever : how to protect adolescents from bullying, harassment, and emotional violence by James Garbarino( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the Best Itentions of school administrators, educators, and parents, many high schools -- even those that have addressed bullying and are considered safe -- unwittingly support and enable hostile and threatening environments. As a society, we are only just beginning to understand the degree of damage that bullying inflicts on individual teenagers and on their relationships later in life. In this groundbreaking work, James Garbarino, the best-selling author of Lost Boys, and Ellen deLara uncover the staggering extent of emotional cruelty and its ramifications and counter the nursery rhyme that words don't hurt. Through hundreds of interviews, the authors provide a direct word-for-word view into the thinking of adolescents and the strategies they use to keep themselves safe during the school day. The latest opinion polls and sociological research show that bullying is the foremost problem in the minds of teenagers, yet no book, until now, has focused exclusively on the experiences and needs of older children. Bullying has long been regarded and tolerated by adults and students alike as a way of school life or rite of passage. But the trauma of Columbine altered students' sense of security at school. Their reactions to emotional violence in the classroom and on the playground, in the form of harassment, intimidation, and fear, now, and finally, are driving parents to consider this insidious phenomenon the serious problem it has always been. And Words Can Hurt Forever, however, not only calls attention to the problem; it not only tells what individual parents can do to protect their child; it also throws into sharp relief the issue of adult responsibility for improving our children's emotional lives
Children and families in the social environment by James Garbarino( Book )

19 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of this widely adopted, interdisciplinary text successfully applied Bronfenbrenner's "micro-systems" taxonomy to child rearing and family life. Emphasizing how forces in the environment of individual children influence their behavior, Garbarino and his associates have staked out a position intermediate between the psychoanalytic and the systems approach to human development." "Taking cognizance of new research and of changes in American society over the past decade, Garbarino and his colleagues have once again carefully analyzed the importance of children's social relationships. For this wholly revised second edition, they have incorporated a greater emphasis on ethnic, cultural, and racial issues. They have also furnished a new bibliography that takes account of the burgeoning research in the field."--Jacket

Children in danger : coping with the consequences of community violence by Nancy Dubrow( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Childhood is ideally a time of safety, marked by freedom from the economic, sexual, and political demands that later become part of adult life. For many children, however, particularly those who live in our inner cities, childhood is increasingly a time of danger. The urban war zones of Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington. D.C., are not unlike the war zones of Beirut, Belfast, and Mozambique. In both worlds, children grow up with firsthand knowledge of terror and violence. This book examines the threat to childhood development posed by living amid chronic community violence. It shows caregiving adults such as teachers, psychologists, social workers, and counselors how they can work together to help children while they are still children--before they become angry, aggressive adults." "Drawing on their extensive fieldwork in war zones around the world, the authors explore the link between a child's response to growing up in an atmosphere of violence and danger, and the social context established for that child by community and caregivers. They reveal the need for establishing predictable, structured, safe environments for children and they show how school-based programs, by providing children with the continuity and regularity that is otherwise lacking in their lives, can enhance children's natural resilience and help ameliorate some of the long-term developmental consequences of living in danger. In addition to providing firsthand accounts of how children growing up in an atmosphere of violence address their situations, the authors also examine the special concerns that relate to the training and support of teachers who deal not only with the violence in the lives of the children they teach, but also with their own personal safety and emotional response to their students' traumas."--Jacket

Raising children in a socially toxic environment by James Garbarino( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence, drugs, uncaring communities, poverty, abusive families, and custody battles are poisoning their lives. Children's psychological health and overall well-being are endangered as well. Author James Garbarino, whose thirty-year career has focused on the effects of violence and abuse on child development, draws attention to these dangers and explains how to strengthen children, families, and communities to help protect children against these toxic influences. His book is designed to inspire parents, policy makers, professionals, spiritual leaders, and all concerned citizens to take action and begin the process of detoxifying our children's social environments. Drawing from a wide range of research, Garbarino explains how a socially toxic environment plays out in the lives of children - helping us understand the developmental toll it exacts from them. He also points to the power we hold to reverse the process by offering alternatives aimed at restoring children's sense of safety in the world

No place to be a child : growing up in a war zone by James Garbarino( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War and violence are part of day-to-day life for many of the world's children. This book explores the lives of the children of Cambodia, Mozambique, Nicaragua, the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and inner-city Chicago. Through research on the psychological and developmental effects of trauma in early life and interviews with children in war zones around the world, the book examines how children cope with war and violence. Noting that while most children can cope with horrible experiences and high levels of stress if they have a secure relationship with parents or effective substitutes, the book points out that they may face lifelong challenges to their mental health, to their physical well-being, and to their moral development. The book's chapters are: (1) "Children and War"; (2) "At What Cost?"; (3) "Cambodian Survivors: Hell Is a Time and Place"; (4) "Mozambique's Children: Dying Is the Easy Part"; (5) "Nicaragua in Conflict: The Politics of Suffering"; (6) "Palestinians in Revolt: Children of the 'Intifada'"; (7) "Chicago: The War Close to Home"; and (8) "Making a Place for Children Who Have No Place To Be a Child."
