the community health systems resource group at the hospital for sick
children is hosting its 2nd symposium focusing on collaborative
a focus on relationships: understanding and addressing girls'
aggressive behaviour problems
host: dr. debra pepler
date: monday november 26th, 2007
location: mars collaboration centre, 101 college street, toronto, on
abstract: there is a growing interest in girls' aggressive behaviour
problems. research is showing that the risk factors for girls' problems
are quite similar to those of boys; however, it appears that
relationships may be especially critical in girls' development. this conference will focus on understanding the risk and protective factors related to girls' development, with an emphasis on how research has been translated into effective interventions for girls of all ages. from a developmental perspective, it is essential to understand and address girls' aggressive behaviour problems early, as they are at high risk for becoming involved in abusive relationships and experience difficulties in their role as mothers of the next generation.
