Increasing awareness of the risks of bullying and cyberbullying amongst adolescent girls.

Gina Marie Silva, California State University, Monterey Bay


Many teenage girls may face bullying situations and may be unaware of how to intervene. Without knowing how to intervene, girls may experience poor mental health, low self-esteem, and lack of social skills. Therefore, I created a one- day interactive lesson on how to intervene in bullying situations and on the negative effects of bullying and cyberbullying for a group of older Girl Scouts in grades 7th-12th at the Girl Scouts of California Central Coast Office in Castroville, California.
