Club Ophelia

Club Ophelia is a program offered to 5th grade girls and middle school girls in the Elizabethtown Area School District to help them develop healthy relationship skills and learn successful ways of handling relational aggression bullying which is a type of behavior that is intended to hurt, harm or injure another person uses the relationship or the threat of the removal of the relationship as the means of harm. Relational aggression includes social exclusion, friendship withdrawal threats (e.g., “I won’t be your friend unless…”), giving the silent treatment and spreading malicious secrets, lies or gossip. Elizabethtown Area High School students serve as mentors and work with adult faculty advisor of Club Ophelia to help the students develop positive self-esteem and identify ways to resolve conflicts with other girls that involve non-aggressive behaviors. By engaging in learning-focused arts, and drama-based activities the girls come to understand the characteristics of healthy peer relationships and have opportunities to practice the skills they learn. The Club Ophelia curriculum was developed by Dr. Cheryl Dellasega. For more information on Dr. Dellasega please use this link to view her website.
