How does a girl Define her voice when Girl Drama is Real! Girl friendships are intense and all-encompassing from early elementary years on; but cliques, bullying, power struggles and an intense desire to belong create a ripe field for relational aggression. Literature reminds us that a girl’s “key support system is – her tribe – which consists of peers who are also as reactive and erratic as they will ever be. (She) works hard every day to harness powerful and unpredictable emotions so that she can get on with doing everything else she means to do.

 In this session,  we will discuss the impact of social aggression and the factors that motivate relational aggression. We will share tools to develop a trauma-free space to promote girls  to define their voices, harness positive power, increasing emotional intelligence, and develop literacy skills through a culturally relevant model to increase girl empowerment. 

We will offer tools to implement strategies promoting SEL, restorative justice practices that strengthen and promote resiliency in girls will be explored. You will discover tools for promoting pro-social behaviors like kindness, sharing and empathy in girls K-12, while improving their attitude toward school and reducing depression.
