Many adolescent girls today are in a crisis of rage and despair. Some try to disappear through starvation. Others carve indecipherable symbols onto their arms, run away from home, or attempt suicide. This practical workshop will explore concrete strategies and methods for helping girls in crisis. You'll learn a variety of practical strategies that work, including harm reduction, inviting resistance, and developing a protective circle of adults. By the time you leave, you'll know what it takes to stay connected to these adolescents as you help them become competent, independent young women.
