"School Mobbing and Emotional Abuse addresses a national need faced by every child in school. It is very possible that a teacher who utilizes this material may save a child from both physical as well as psychological abuse and may ultimately save a child's life. This material is that powerful and that important." -- Peter D. Blauvelt, President and CEO, National Alliance for Safe Schools

"Were you ever bullied, ganged up on, or picked on as a kid back in school? Sure, we all were. But today such attacks are taken a bit more seriously -- and rightly so, for they can easily turn deadly. As Gail states, 'Mobbing is terrorism.' The book deals with the issue from the perspective of all parties concerned -- the victim, the parents, the school staff, and even the perpetrator -- and it explains what each must do to resolve the situation. Part 1 of the book defines mobbing and its psychology, discusses school policies and how they can be improved, how people can help the victim, teaching dignity and respect to students, and the process of healing after a mobbing. Part 2 is a series of essays that can be used in the classroom to promote dignity, respect, insight, and awareness." -- Mensa Bulletin
