Understanding, Assessing, and Preventing Threats to Self and Others for Victims of Bullying, by Butch Losey.

The main objective of this book is to provide a detailed understanding of the relationship between bullying, suicide, and homicide and to offer an assessment and response strategy that is useful for mental health professionals who work with children.

• It will help readers understand that bullying is not a part of childhood development, but rather an aberrant behavior that for the victim can lead to adverse decisions, such as suicide and homicide.

• Specific topics covered include the identification of risk factors of suicide and homicide for someone who is being bullied; characteristics of bullying that are more traumatic and there fore carry more risk; analysis of homicide risk within the context of American school shooters; four "indelible links" that thread through bullying, suicide, and homicide that take on particular significance and point to a need for a heightened awareness on the part of professionals working with victims; and appropriate assessment and intervention strategies.

• This text also intends to challenge the prevailing idea that suicide is about death; instead, it is about escape, which can make it seem to be a viable option (although a poor one) for children who experience suicidal ideation as a result of bullying and can find no other form of escape.
