Friendship Bullying or relational aggression is defined by the National Association of School Psychologists as “harm within relationships that is caused by covert bullying or manipulation.”
Relational aggression (RA) can be difficult to spot. Students in grades 2nd-5th tend to view RA as a “friendship problem” rather than as a type of bullying. It is important to teach students the difference between relational aggression and friendship problems.
Students experiencing RA need to be able to:
Identify when their friends are not acting like a friend.
Know that they do not need to put up with unfriendly behavior.
Execute strategies to combat aggressive behavior.
The activities in this packet will help students identify RA behavior and prepare them to respond to RA in an appropriate manner.
*Relational aggression is referred to as “friendship bullying” in the activities to help simplify the concept and add context to the behavior.
