The Bullying Workbook for Teens incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help ease anxiety, fear, stress, and other emotions associated with being bullied.

The workbook is made up 42 step-by-step self-help activities designed to help you learn anti-bullying tips and strategies; manage emotions such as anxiety, fear, anger, and depression; and learn constructive communication skills to help you express your feelings.

With this workbook as your guide, you will also learn how to identify toxic friendships, how to build your own self-confidence, and importantly, how to ask for help when bullying gets out of control or if you are feeling suicidal. The exercises in this book are designed to be useful in everyday situations, so that you can combat bullying or cyberbullying in your life.

Whether you are a straight A student, a cheerleader, a member of the LGBT community, or encompass all of these things, you should know that bullying can happen to anyone. But there is hope to make a change and stand up for yourself, once and for all.

If you are a teen victim of bullycide, this book will offer sound psychological support to help you gain confidence in yourself and in your interactions with others. It is also a great resource for parents, educators, and counseling professionals.

“The Bullying Workbook for Teens is a remarkable, relevant resource for both teens and professionals. The activities are engaging and offer practical strategies to help teens work through and cope with bullying situations, while also raising their self-confidence. As I read it, I found tools to implement in my own work with teens. This book offers eye-opening insights and will be useful to any teen who has been victimized by bullies.”

“The Bullying Workbook for Teens is a non-judgmental companion, reflection aid, and an `aha’ moment-maker for isolated teens. It’s also a much-needed tool for clinicians. I recommend it highly and look forward to using it myself.”
