The script theory in social psychology provides the major foundation for a range of strategies in this book for parents to guide their children to manage situations that involve bullying. The practical techniques covered include breathing and imagery skills as well as cognitive and interpersonal skills for expanding the children's positive social circles.

Research Statement

Research Background The various concepts and strategies described in this book are based on the coauthors' clinical experience as well as current research in clinical, developmental, and social psychology.
Research Contribution This book supports applied research in child mental health by providing testable strategies that parents can apply in guiding their children to develop skills in reducing distress that these children may suffer from bullying experiences.
Research Significance There is a shortage of books for parents in the Asian community on practical strategies for optimizing their children's socioemotional well-being in the context of peer bullying. This book aims to fill this gap by presenting self-help methods that are both theoretically coherent and clinically effective.
