Relational Aggression: Understanding Girls' Friendships & Conflicts
This presentation looks at psychological research, popular media portrayals, and teachers' experiences in examining gender differences in girls' and boys' friendships, schoolwork and play patterns. The implications for conflict resolution are explored as well as the developmental differences in expressions of anger and the roles girls assume. Effective character education-based strategies will be presented for educators to use in helping girls develop healthy relationships and prevent relational aggression.
