The focus of this one-day seminar is to provide educators specific strategies, activities and insights that can be used to confront and avoid girl drama and relational aggression. Based upon the latest brain reseach, as well as current best practices, these interventions can be used to revive, launch or sustain efforts to prevent drama and 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.

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 aregrowing fast, and 92% of North American teens now own a smart phone, according to the latest Pew Research. With the exception of gaming, girls are far more likely than boys to access these online options.

This seminar will help attendees understand the underlying neuroscience, as well as the latest research concerning drama and relational aggression among girls. Attendees will be provided tools for instilling social/emotional connections among girls that reduce relational aggression and improve academic outcomes.
