Adolescence is a time when girls are known for cliques, relational aggression, and social exclusion. Many of us have our own personal stories of painful social interactions and social injustice to share. How then can we as teachers best support our students through these tumultuous years? This webinar will provide how-to strategies for addressing the growing problem of girl meanness in middle school and high school. Participants will learn how to address friendship struggles and girl bullying within the context of the classroom and social media. Join Dr. Michelle Anthony as she explains the behavior through a developmental lens with a positive tone. She will share a simple four-step process, along with a variety of take-back tools and strategies, to help teachers teach and adolescent girls to manage the many conflicts and dilemmas they face in the teen years.

I thought this was very helpful. I enjoyed listening to the speaker. I especially appreciated what she said about students in middle school are starting to look for peer groups that fit them, not simply fitting into peer groups.

The webinar discusses meanness in middle school and high school girls. There is a developmental shift that needs the attention of educators in order to help girls in this age group. Thank you for presenting on this much needed topic.
