Teenage girls can be mean. Often stemming from poor self–awareness, self–esteem and lack of relationship skills, complex friendship dynamics can be difficult to unravel and bullying can be hard to resolve.

Surviving Girlhood provides a unique resource for preventing girl bullying by addressing the root causes and helping girls to be strong, positive individuals. Part 1 covers the facts on girl bullying, how to understand it, and the particular complexity of girls. Part 2 includes over 60 tried–and–tested activities that will help girls understand their needs, values, beliefs and influences as drivers for their behavior. Through five key themes, from ’Being Me’ to ’Conflict Resolution’, they will also build self–awareness, self–esteem, and strong relationship skills.

This photocopiable resource will be an invaluable tool for teachers, youth workers, counselors, youth offending teams, behavioral specialists and all those working with girls aged 11—16.
