Recent studies show that 1 in 5 girls fear being hurt or harassed at school. And girls are twice as likely as boys to be victims of long-term bullying – bullying that often begins as early as age 6, and can last for years. Girls tend to be more covert about their relational aggression, and sometimes approach bullying as “snipers in the night.” They use gossiping, rumoring, notes, texts, websites, social alliances and exclusions to subdue their victims. Girls tend to choose other girls as their targets, and their goal is often to hurt someone through damaging their sense of self-worth and their perception of how their peers value or devalue them. These two powerful webinars will help you understand the key issues underlying these kinds of cruelties from a girl’s perspective. Girls can move quickly between the roles of aggressor, target and victim. These research-based webinars will focus primarily on how to help the aggressor with specific prevention and intervention strategies. Attendees will be provided with helpful activities and handouts which they can use in their bullying programs.
