The effects include 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. Attendees will be provided tools for instilling social/emotional connections among girls that reduce relational aggression and improve academic outcomes. In this session you will learn to identify online communication and social media trends affecting today’s girls, discover how to instill social/emotional connections among girls, implement individual, small group and classroom strategies and activities, and design your own plan for addressing female relational aggression. This workshop is designed for anyone who interacts with 3- 12 grade females. Steph Jensen, MS, LPC, is an award-winning author and international speaker recognized for her insight and understanding of relational aggression. She is the author of Thrive in the Hive: Surviving the Girl’s World of Good and Bad Relationship Bee-haviors. For more information, contact April at or 828.774.5681, ext. 20.
