Bullying is a persistent worldwide phenomenon, a type of discrimination that even today is generally accepted as a part of everyday life. Homophobic Bullying comprehensively explores this anti-gay behavior and the negative impact it has on the victims. Leading authorities from various areas around the world provide insights and analysis of the current research on this type of bullying, and offer diverse effective approaches to combat the destructive behavior.

From the book's introduction, Joyce Hunter says that the book contributes "toward increased understanding of bullying and its negative impact on our youth. It has the potential to influence teachers, counselors, and policymakers in education and, in turn, improve the climate for the students themselves." This powerful resource does more than simply describe the problem, it provides proactive approaches for addressing the problem, including addressing the most difficult aspect, changing community attitudes toward tolerance of the diversity that LGBT people bring to society. This insightful text provides educators and student with a broad, up-to-date understanding of the many aspects of bullying LGBT youth and adults. Social service practitioners may well find this handbook an essential tool for working with young people.
This book is a crucial resource for program administrators and supervisors, human behavior researchers, social planners and policy specialists, community developers and organizers, case managers, direct service practitioners involved with LGBT communities, individuals in LGBT youth groups, educators, and students in education, counseling, social work, and youth studies.
