Relational Aggression Awareness and Prevention
This seminar is targeted to children and adolescents. The seminar answers the questions: What is relational aggression? How do you identify relational aggression? How do bystanders contribute to the impact of relational aggression within a school community? How do I make the choice to intervene? How do I intervene safely and intentionally? Research indicates that relational aggression affects both the bystander and the victim. However, such incidents in our school settings often go under-reported and unaddressed. In an effort to combat a lack of preventative services around relational aggression, this seminar works to foster community awareness as an effective way to promote peer-to-peer support and advocacy in the face of relational aggression.
