Frenemies, Mean Girls and Relational Aggression

Mean-girl behavior, typically referred to as relational aggression, happens in every school and can begin as early as kindergarten. The victims of mean-girl behavior often suffer from stomach aches and have anxiety about coming to school. As a counselor I have spent a lot of time addressing this issue. I think it's important to cover this topic in large-group settings as well as in small-group and individual sessions. I own almost every resource listed below. I use the video for my classroom lesson as it is appropriate for both genders.
