Overview

When you're the target of snubbing or teasing at school, it's easy to feel like everyone else has a group of friends and you're the only odd one out. The reality is that gossip and rumors hurt everyone, and often, even the most popular girls feel alone. Making your way through junior high and high school isn't easy, and it definitely requires more than the right shoes and lip gloss. You'll need a cool head and the confidence to be yourself in the face of serious social challenges.

This workbook will help you deal with cliques, teasing, and gossip, and show you how to avoid getting caught up in this hurtful pattern of behavior. Coping with Cliques also includes key strategies for sticking up for yourself, maintaining your self-esteem even when others tease you, and finding friends who like you for who you are.

The exercises in this workbook will help you to:

  • Handle Internet gossip and teasing
  • Stop feeling like you have to be sexy
  • Be assertive when necessary to gain respect and confidence
  • Find true friends and stop being hurt by friends who leave you out

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - C.J. Bott
This review addresses several books in the "Instant Help Book for Teens" series. The first exercise in What's Eating You? is a three-page questionnaire to help teen looks at their eating behaviors. The activities that follow are structured, nonthreatening, self-probing, blame releasing, and hopeful. In Stopping the Pain, Shapiro explains that there are many misconceptions about cutting; for example, that teens who self-injure are just trying to get attention, are very sick people, or are crazy. In reality, most who self-injure do so as a way of coping with the trauma or pain in their lives. This workbook helps individuals look at their lives, find a path out of the pain, and create a path back to health. Coping with Cliques takes a different tone from the others workbooks in this series, as the author attempted to use teen slang that is already outdated and in doing so the problem of female-to-female harassment is trivialized. Other workbooks in this series include: Anxiety Workbook for Teens by Lisa M. Schab; Beyond the Blues by Lisa M. Schab; The Social Success Workbook for Teens by Barbara Cooper and Nancy Widdows; The Anger Workbook for Teens by Raychelle Cassada Lohmann; and The Divorce Workbook for Teens by Lisa M. Schab.

Its great for tweens and parents to discuss howbto deal with the pressures of their peers. The only thing i don't like is you cannot write in it. If you have your own journal then its fine
