For the past 10 years, the Girl Bullying Conference has brought focus to the problem of relational aggression among girls. Quite naturally, many of the field-tested interventions presented at this unique gathering encourage friendship, sisterhood and building other types of supportive relationships – hence the added emphasis on female empowerment.

Now in its 11th year, the Girl Bullying & Empowerment Conference will be more accessible – with locations in Orlando and Las Vegas. This unique gathering will help counselors, principals, teachers, social workers and other professionals understand the latest research and field-tested strategies designed to address relational aggression and to build positive, supportive relationships among girls.

Featured topics include:

  • Keys to Transforming Aggressive Young People
