Tina Daniels has been studying conflict and aggression for the last 20 years. Her interests are in the area of primary prevention . She has developed, implemented and evaluated conflict resolution programs, social skills training programs, peer mediation programs and anti-bullying programs both locally and internationally. In the last five years she has directed her attention to understanding the role social/relational aggression plays within children’s close relationships, in particular girls’ best friendships and peer networks. By better understanding the relational nature of aggression and the relationships that surround and shape children who utilize and experience aggressive strategies she hopes to be better able to teach children to deal effectively with the conflict they find in everyday life. Most recently Tina has helped to found and currently sits as the Chair of the Ottawa Anti-bullying Coalition, a group of more than 50 community members committed to raising awareness of the negative effects of bullying and to eliminating bullying in all realms of a child’s life. She gives a number of workshops to teachers, parents and children regarding the development and implementation of Anti-bullying initiatives each year.
