This 4-session workshop empowers girls to:

*understand and implement fundamental friendship skills, including 

 empathy, compassion, and kindness

*practice assertive communication 

*develop conflict resolution skills

*protect themselves from relational aggression

*gain a better understanding of their uniqueness, their personal values and 

 their strengths

*identify and cope with uncomfortable feelings

*endure and overcome challenges

As a mother of a 9-year-old daughter, I see the challenges young girls face as they learn to navigate friendships.  Relational aggression is becoming more and more prevalent, and is being observed in grades as early as preschool.  It is my hope that by providing skills, and having important conversations with our young girls, we can empower them to develop healthy friendships.  That is why I developed this workshop.

The format consists of four 2-hour sessions.  After each session, you will receive an email that summarizes what she learned that day.  It will also include suggestions of ways you can support her as she learns to implement and practice her skills, and questions you can go through with her in order to continue the conversation.
