Break the cycle of social and relational aggression between girls!

Girl bullying—also known as relational aggression—is a very real and pervasive problem in today′s schools, and studies indicate that bullying between girls can be more covert than between boys, thus making it more difficult for school professionals to detect and address.

Primarily written for school counselors, this book covers the causes and characteristics of relational and social aggression and outlines methods for assessment, prevention, and intervention. The authors answer questions about what girl bullying is, why it happens, what it looks like, how to measure it, and what educators can do to help girls with these issues. The book provides:

  • School-based interventions to help students learn alternative, healthy ways of managing conflict
  • Sample forms and checklists for documenting and addressing incidents of girl bullying
  • An original 10-session curriculum for small groups
  • Information on classroom dynamics, bullying, and cyberbullying
  • Specific suggestions for working with parents and teachers

Understanding Girl Bullying and What to Do About It helps professionals heal the divide between girls by giving them the tools to work through their problems thoughtfully and constructively.
