Coming to Baltimore, January 29

The focus of this one-day seminar is to provide educators gender-specific strategies, activities and insights that can be used to confront and avoid relational aggression and bullying. These interventions can be used to revive, launch or sustain efforts to prevent emotional violence among girls. Without help, girls who are targets often suffer lasting effects – including academic withdrawal, social withdrawal, depression, substance abuse, risky sexual behavior, delinquency, crime, dysfunctional relationships, self-injury and even suicide. Unfortunately the target herself all too often becomes a bully.

About this Seminar

Relational aggression among girls has intensified with the explosion of online communication/social media. While texting and Facebook are still widely used, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr, Vine, Google+, Skype, Oovoo, Facetime, Omegle, Whisper, Yik Yak, Ask.FM, reddit, Digg, Pinterest, Polyvore, Kik and WhatsApp are growing fast, and 91% of North American teens now have access to a smart phone, according to 2015 Pew Research. Except for gaming, girls are far more likely than boys to access these online options.

This seminar will help attendees understand the latest research around female bullying and relational aggression – which often exhibits as exclusion, isolation, rumoring, gossiping, pitting friends against one another, revealing personal secrets and/or altering personal secrets. Attendees will be provided tools for instilling social/emotional connections among girls that reduce relational aggression and improve academic outcomes.
