All young people need a safe, supportive place to "just talk" with caring peers and an attentive adult. Tested with teens in many kinds of schools (plus community centers, churches, and workshops), these guided discussions are ways to reach out to young people and address their social and emotional needs. Teens gain self-awareness and self-esteem, practice problem-solving and goal-setting, feel more in control of their lives, and learn that they have much in common with each other. Each session is self-contained and step-by-step. Many include reproducible handouts. For advising teachers, counselors, and youth workers in all kinds of school and group settings.
The included CD-ROM features all of the reproducible handouts from the book. For advising teachers, counselors, and youth workers in all kinds of school and group settings.
