“Mean Girls” was a movie, then a Broadway show, and now a new and updated movie. What they all have in common is they are centered on teen relationships and social dynamics, particularly relational aggression.

As many of our teens experience competitive behavior and bullying in school and online, especially with today’s rising antisemitism, what role do parents have to play in helping their teens navigate relational aggression? How can we give them the skills to foster healthy relationships and lasting friendships in middle school, high school, and beyond?

Join Moving Traditions’ Rabbi Daniel Brenner and Rabbi Tamara Cohen in conversation with Dr. Tracy Evian Waasdorp, an adolescent psychiatrist and researcher specializing in relational aggression. As the director of research on school bullying and social emotional learning at the Center for Violence Prevention at the University of Pennsylvania, Waasdorp will share expert insights and resources.

In this “Raising Up Teens” webinar for parents and educators of Jewish teens, you will receive actionable takeaways and resources to help you and the teen in your life.
