All The Rage

All the Rage is a 5 session adult discussion circle designed to educate caregivers about relational aggression (bullying.)

Relational Aggression, also called "sneaky aggression," is the use of relationships to harm another. It can create a hostile social environment in school settings, affecting children’s ability to learn and grow.  Research shows that indirect aggression is used by adolescents more often than direct aggression to harm relationships.1  While all youth use RA, it is especially prevalent amongst females.

They will:

  • Use relationships to inflict harm
  • Manipulate relationships with their peers.
  • Injure others’ feelings of social acceptance

All the Rage is a complement to the Voices program by providing parents with the coaching tools and resources to support their child’s social and emotional development.
