This book takes you into the world of modern day girl bullying, which is multi-faceted, complex and something every school, youth worker and parent wants to overcome. These complexities are discussed alongside both pro-active and reactive strategies for intervening, managing and teasing out the intricacies that are present when girls bully, and fall prey to those bullies. The aim is to help adults working with girls to develop a toolbox of strategies and understanding that can help to provide bespoke approaches. What this book will not do is offer a one-size-fits-all solution of how to stop girl bullying.
Dealing with these issues takes time and patience, trust and knowledge of those involved and most of all it takes the willingness to appreciate the world around girls today. Written by an expert child psychologist, this book aims to increase understanding of the fall out, psychological impact and support strategies for both victims and perpetrators of bullying.
Bullying can have a detrimental effect on the academic attainment, self-esteem, and day-to-day lives of all the individuals involved. Healthier coping strategies are life skills that help us all to function effectively not just in a school environment, but throughout later life. This book is essential reading for anyone working with girls aged 5-16 who wants to facilitate pro-active and pro-social skill foundations.
