Books Info:

Understanding Girl Bullying and What to Do About It free pdf Girl bullying, also called relational aggression is a very real and pervasive problem in schools. Studies show that bullying is as common in girls as it is in boys, but that it can be more covert and thus more difficult for school professionals to detect and address. This book covers the causes and characteristics of relational aggression and outlines assessment, prevention, and intervention methods for counselors, administrators, teachers, and parents. Included are sample forms and checklists that educators can use to document and address bullying for both the perpetrator and the victim. This resource blends academic, empirical, and practical perspectives to answer the questions of: what girl bullying is? Why it happens? What it looks like? How to measure it? How to help girls deal with incidents?
