  • I did Mean Girls, Relational aggression and the way they they bully, and their methods. I wanted to do something with bullying, but because bullying was such a broad topic, I decided to pick one form to really study, so i chose relational aggression :)\n\n
  • \n
  • mention being kicked out of table in 8th grade.\n
  • Behavior that is intended to hurt someone by harming his or her relationships with others (Crick & Grotpeter, 1995)\n A form of aggression where the group is used as a weapon to assault others and others’ relationships.\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • overt- done or shown openly, not secret or hidden\ncovert-not openly acknowledged or displayed\n
  • \n
  • RMG= really mean girl\nalways dressed nice, always want to look perfect every day at school. \nShe is not intimidated by other girls,her friends do what she wants, she wont take responsibility for hurting other’s feelings. Believes her image is dependent on her relationships.\nShe loses her sense of self by working so hard to maintain her image\n\n
  • The sidekick feels the queen is the authority, allows herself to be pushed around by the queen, rarely ever expresses her own opinion, and will lie for the Queen. Her power depends on the confidence she gains from the Queen. She is always supporting her, because she could later be the victim.\n
  • different, dominant, disruptive\nShe feels helpless to stop the other girl’s behaviors. Feels excluded and isolated.\nShe masks her hurt feelings by rejecting people first.\nMay be tempted to change to fit in.\n
  • \n
  • role of boys in girl-girl conflicts\n-girls learn early on to value relationships with boys over relationships with girls\n\nclassic conflict- girl who goes out with her best friend’s boyfriend, either before or after the best friend and boyfriend have broken up.\n\nAsk who is to blame? and who’s side would you take?\n
  • go through all the roles of each character\nRegina George= aggressor\nGretchen Weiners and Karen are the girls in the middle\nAaron is the boy instigator. \nThe victims are the rest of the school that felt victimized by Regina George. \nWhen Katie becomes the new lead, regina is being bullied. All roles switch around.\nHere is a clip of the the roles before Katie becomes involved\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • The Media makes it seem like every girl has to be perfect, and look like models. \n
  • This vicious circle never ends. If someone has any power whatsoever, they feel like they have control of another person, they feel so popular, and that makes them feel a little more secure about themselves, but then they still fear that it will not last long.\n
  • Formspring is the WORST website ever. The fact that it is anonymous is just so stupid. I found this on one friends formspring- “You are so obnoxious and fat, just seeing you in the hallway every day makes me want to puke!” This actually made me cry, not like its hard for me to cry, but reading this one friend’s formspring was so shocking to me. \n
  • Girls are twice as likely as boys to be victims of cyber bullying\nIt is usually done, or at least planned in a group, either virtually or together in one room.\nGirls only do this for entertainment\nThey require an audience, and if they do not get the attention they are seeking from it, then it will quickly die.\nThis is not the same for formspring. In formspring situations, it can be completely anonymous, so everyone can be extremely fake people from this.\n
  • Frequent acts of relational aggression can cause the victim to experience lonliness, anxiety, low self esteem, and depression. Both bullies and victims usually deal with depression, anxiety, eating disorders and poor academic performance. More severe effects include refusing to go to school or try to transfer out of the school in order to escape the bullying. \n
  • The damage from any kind of bullying can last a lifetime. Both victims and bullies are at risk of developing adjustment problems. This will lead to problems with relationships, depression and even suicide. \n
  • There are TWO rules a teacher or parent MUST know.\nNumber One- Silence is acceptance-\nif educators and other responsible adults don’t call aggression bullying by their proper names, perpetrators live above the law and victims have no recourse. \n
  • \n
  • This is a great easy guide to get your feelings out to a friend that you are in a conflict with\n
  • This is the parent’s guide, but could also be used for solving conflicts with your friends.\n
  • \n
  • [[\n
  • This is more of a teacher’s guide, but everyone can make a difference, and help change this problem.\n1. discuss alternatives: give girl the self esteem and confidence to give her strength to defuse an aggressor, support victim, etc.\n2. Reward Kindness: maybe pencils that say “I was caught being kind” \n3. prevent dwelling and obsessing about it: help girls develop coping skills that do not involve others (listening to music, exercising, journal)\n4. Help her establish relationship boundaries: identify specific behaviors that are unhealthy. determine the crossing line, stick to her principles\n5. Use rituals of respect: earlier they are implemented, longer they remain\n\n\n
  • 6. Empower girls to problem solve: give encouragment to use their own creativity in problem solving and conflict resolution\n7. Help girls explore a new way of relating to peers: Figure out who you are, and whats important to you. “If girls can find healthy ways to explore and become comfortable with who they are, they will be free to have positive, supportive relationships with one another.”\n8. Reframe hurtful behaviors: Some girls are naturally capable of self confident behavior, while others can learn to react confidently through preparing, proccessing and practicing. Ask what might you do differently.\n9. Repeat, Repeat, repeat.: Moms aren’t enough. Have her hear the same words her dad, or bulletin board in the school.\n
  • It may be tempting to just agree with the aggressor, because you do not want to be next.\nIf someone tries to spread a rumor, inform them firmly that you know it’s untrue, and they should not repeat it to anyone else.\nLet her know you are on her side.\nAdults may consider bullying like this only to get someone else in trouble, if it is only from the victim, but if someone is there by her side to back her up, they may listen more closely.\n
  • Here’s another strategy, may be a bit easier!\n
  • The Ophelia project, started in Erie, PA is spreading across the country. They offer camps, workshops and many more to change the relationships between girls. One girl standing up for another makes a huge difference. They dont JUST work with young girls, they also work with ALL ages, \n
  • So i emailed out the link to my survey to many of my friends and students. This survey was completely anonymous, and of course, no one HAD to fill it out if they did not want to. Here are just some of the result summaries.\n
  • This was one of the first questions in my survey. Do you know what relational aggression is/means? 18 people said no, 69% I was shocked to see this.\n
  • This was one of the first questions in my survey. Do you know what relational aggression is/means? 18 people said no, 69% I was shocked to see this.\n
  • 100 % of people said YES!\n
  • 96 % said yes, and 1 person said Not that I am aware of.\n
  • 92% said yes, 24 people, and only 2 people said no they have not. But I’m not only going to include the shockingly bad answers.... \n(next slide)\n
  • 73% said yes, 23% said no, and one person said that they had never witnessed bullying.\n
  • \n
  • The answer to this question, is what made me finally decide on what else I should do with my application, I was going to start a club, until I found out we already had one in our school! It is called Salvaging Sisterhood, and I went to one class, just to sit in and observe. I noticed their role playing, and how they were communicating with each other. I decided then to have a girls workshop, just like the ophelia project does, but just a much shortened version, all crammed in an hour.\n
  • here’s a picture of all of us together at the end!\n
  • 5 things you like about yourself- as they walked in, i gave them a piece of paper to write 5 thing you like about yourself because the first step to standing up to an aggressor is self confidence. Also trying to find out who your friends should be, you should figure out who you want yourself to be.\nWe defined relational aggression because a lot of people did not even know what it was, and how it was different than physical. The find someone who game was just to get to know everyone around the room, and also see that they have been through the same things you have, you are not alone.\nThe role playing was interesting. There will be a videos in the next slides. After each group acted their scene out, we had a discussion about what should have happened, and how to solve it better.\nThe communication and problem solving, we did trust walks. One person was blindfolded, and one person was the navigator, and they tried to walk around the room to find the candy. Most groups communicated well and understood each other.\nWe had a end discussion about the problems with girl bullying, cliques in our school, and about how they have handled bullying in their lives.\n\n

  • situation 1- A group of friends are in a huddle talking before class starts talking about last nights soccer game. Amy comes walking up and says hey guys. They blame her for losing the soccer game for them last night. One girl says “Maybe if you weren’t so FAT then you could run faster and we would win the game” another girl says “Don’t ever come back to our team practice again!” \n\nsituation 2- A group of friends always sit at the same table in the cafeteria every day. One day, everyone decides to switch tables, because it would be “funny” to watch Victoria sit all by herself all lunch, and not know where anyone is. \n\nsituation 3- 2 best friends, Sasha and Vicki like the same boy (Gabe) and he told Sasha that he was starting to like Vicki, not knowing that Sasha liked him as well. Sasha told him that she is freakishly obsessed with him, and once saved a tissue that he used. These rumors spread all around the school. \n\nsituation 4- Clara, Rachel and Anita are in the library and started a face book group called Anti-Jane. People all over the school are joining this group and writing horrible comments about her. No one goes to a teacher or adult. \n

  • Most people think that relational aggression is just a part of everyone’s lives, and everyone goes through it,, which is what i thought when starting this project, but NO it can be stopped and prevented, girls just need people that will listen to them. \n
