The Healthy Transitions for Girls Workbook is a "one-stop shop." Instead of going through multiple files and workbooks to find creative interventions, Healthy Transitions for Girls is a comprehensive intervention resource.

Professionals in private practice, agencies, schools, or other settings will also appreciate that Healthy Transitions for Girls can be used in individual or group therapy or as a series of prevention workshops. This workbook offers step-by-step directions and a list of needed materials that streamline planning and implementation to help Professionals, Parents, Mentors, & Clergy become EXPERTS in the issues confronting today's girls.

The latest and most effective counseling interventions focus on prevention and wellness, rather than just focusing on pathology. In Healthy Transitions for Girls, the objective of each activity is an "I can" statement, such as "I can develop a working definition of femininity that is non-sexualized," or "I can recognize my support systems and learn to ask for help."
Healthy Transitions for Girls honors the latest brain science as well as new understanding of the mind-body connection, offering a creative, "whole body" experience. Real learning needs to involve the logical left side of the brain as well as the intuitive, emotional right side of the brain. Girls need to have emotional connections to the concepts being taught for them to internalize new attitudes and behaviors. For that reason, art, role play, tangible objects, and movement activities, are used to teach the abstract concepts in this curriculum.
A must have resource for Professionals, Parent, Mentors, & Clergy.
