Abstract

Relational aggression, defined as harm that occurs through injury or manipulation of a relationship, has more recently emerged as a point of contrast to physical aggression and has received increased attention in the popular press and in scholarly journals. Relational aggression is discussed in terms of definitions, identification and intervention in a school context. A program developed for 7th through 9th grade girls in a rural school district was discussed and evaluated.
