Abstract
Being harassed at school, targeted while using the Internet, or left alone at home are realities for many middle schoolers. This program empowers students to feel confident in their ability to protect themselves in the face of violent behavior they may encounter. It shows students how being assertive, developing a personal safety plan, and trusting their instincts can help them avoid victimization and stay safe. Combining real teens' stories with advice from violence prevention experts, program teaches students how to: go to and from school safely; prevent theft of personal property at school; avoid a physical fight; handle a bully; deal with sexual harassment; be safe when home alone; use the internet safely.
Reproducible student handouts reinforce practical skills and strategies. Program ends with the message that if students are victimized, it is never their fault.

Abstract
This book helps youth function in an increasingly violent and less secure world. Explores important topics such as: The combination of forces that create "human volcanoes" who explode with rage and violence; The "hidden" violence that permeates our entertainment, news, and language. Because we've all become desensitized to this destructive force, we must learn to see the media with new eyes; How tolerating behaviors such as teasing, sarcasm, and bullying, which often leave emotional scars, actually encourages future acts of violence; Specific steps young people can take to reduce violence in their personal behavior, their relationships with family and friends, and in their schools and communities.
