Violent Communication and Bullying in Early Childhood Education $195.00
Editors: Panagiotis J. Stamatis and Eleni N. Nikolaou (Department of Sciences of Preschool Education and Educational Design, School of Humanities, University of the Aegean, Rhodes, Greece)
Book Description:
This book attempts to shed light on the social phenomenon of school bullying that emerges at preschool ages. It is a book that promotes opposition to violent communication and bullying in early childhood education by providing non-violent communication, anti-bullying techniques and advice for teachers and parents. Within this framework, it focuses on the definitions and forms of bullying in early childhood, its manifestations, the circumstances of its manifestation, the associated risk factors and its prevention. Teachersí perceptions are explored in the context of the research studies conducted regarding important aspects of the phenomenon. Moreover, school bullying involves verbal and non-verbal communication elements, and it is conceptualized as a form of communication violence and miscommunication. It also includes contemporary scientific research data and it emphasizes the communication aspect of bullying. Teachersí verbal and non-verbal behaviors affect the relationships among students and may lead to communication violence. Nonviolent communication is considered the key to controlling bullying in educational environments. Non-violent communication is the antidote to communicative bullying, which creates many other forms of bullying as a result of miscommunication and paracommunication among individuals. In addition, it contains an analysis of literary works pertaining to school bullying, as literature is regarded as an ally to the success of all efforts to address bullying. Furthermore, this book includes research data regarding school bullying and its dimensions according to the perceptions of teachers and parents. The originality of this book is associated with the study of school bullying in early childhood and the study of its communication aspect as well as its multidisciplinary approach.
