ABSTRACT
Nastiness can take place in high school, particularly among young teenage girls. Dealing with day-to-day cruelty dealt out by their peers can be tough in real life. The dynamic is developmentally related, notes Dr. Cheryl Dellasega, associate professor of humanities in the Penn State College of Medicine at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. Dellasega is the creator of Club and Camp Ophelia, programs that aim to reduce bullying among middle school girls using mentoring and an arts-based curriculum. The programs currently run in two school districts in Pennsylvania, and Dellasega has started to train others so the programs can be offered throughout Pennsylvania and beyond.
