The Repercussions of Bullying on Girls’ Futures

The US Department of Health and Human Services is hosting a webinar, The Repercussions of Bullying on Girls’ Futures (PDF). The session will be held on September 20th, 2pm ET. For those of you who cannot attend the live session, it will be recorded and archived, available for review here after September 22nd.

From the site:

After participating in this webinar participants will be able to:

· Recognize girls’ anger and their perceived options to express that anger and how their experience impacts their emotional health and future relationships as they enter adulthood

· Learn concrete strategies to help girls build social competencies and emotional well-being now and in the future

· Understand the impact of technology (both positive and negative) on girls’ ability to navigate relationships

The featured speaker is Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabees, among others. As the parent of a pre-teen girlchild, I will definitely check this one out.
