Making choices, Talk it out: communication, Feeling feelings: understanding emotions, Gal pals: healthy friendships, Happy to be me! Self esteem, Hard times: dealing with difficult issues, It's OK to need help: reaching out, Who I am! Self identity. During group lessons, girls are encouraged to share feelings and struggles as they openly discuss important issues in a safe and supportive environment. They are given the opportunity to feel empowered, gain self-awareness, develop coping strategies, improve problem-solving skills, understand that they are not along, and learn to make healthy decisions"--P.
