Understanding Girls’ Friendship Groups, Cliques and Bullying Behaviour

girlsThese workshops continue to be very popular. 40 delegates attended our most recent sessions in Ringmer, East Sussex on the 8th December and Billingshurst, West Sussex on the 10th.

Friendships mean the world to girls, but like any relationship, they have their ups and downs. Evidence suggests that girls’ friendships and bullying behaviour are far more complex and difficult to deal with than friendship problems and bullying behaviour amongst their male counterparts, as girls’ friendship can often be personal, psychological and emotionally destructive.

The training provides delegates with an insight and understanding into the social dynamics that exist within girls’ friendship groups and cliques, whilst offering the opportunity to explore a range of practical problem-solving strategies to deal with friendship problems and bullying behaviour.

This half-day training event aims to:

  • Examine how girls behave within individual friendship groups and cliques
  • Explore the nature of bullying behaviour amongst girls
  • Provide practical strategies to address friendship problems and bullying behaviour
  • Consider how to empower girls to leave a clique safely

The training event was hosted by John Khan, lead practitioner for Anti-Bullying Works and former Head of East Sussex’s Anti-Bullying Team.
