Let's Talk About It, a group for adolescent girls
McNamara, Kathleen Anne
'Let's Talk About It' was a discussion group run for a group of grade 7 girls. The primary goal of the group was to provide some of the essential skills and support the girls would require as they made their way through adolescence. Through providing girls with the opportunity to explore issues that have particular relevance in their lives, it was hoped they would become more able and confident in their decision making. The exercises and topics discussed in the group were secondary to providing a safe environment for the girls to express themselves and explore issues without being judged. It was the opportunity, more than the content covered, which was the stimulus for growth. The feedback from the girls was positive and overall the girls rated the group as a success.
