Abstract/Book Review

Reviews the book, Surviving Girlhood: Building Positive Relationships, Attitudes and Self‐Esteem to Prevent Teenage Girl Bullying by Niki. Giant and Rachel. Beddoe ( 2013). This book is a useful resource for preventing girl bullying, written by experienced anti-bullying officers. They note that UK schools must have an anti bullying policy by law, but these tend to have a reactive approach rather than tackling root causes. This book is primarily aimed at school staff, but would also be useful for youth workers and clinicians. Some of the activities would be helpful for generally building girls’ self-esteem, even in the absence of bullying issues. Overall, this provides a useful proactive toolkit for helping adolescent girls to develop self respect and establish positive relationships with others.
