How Girl Power Works
Step 1 – Getting Started
You and your daughter will meet with program director Pearl Berger for an initial consultation and assessment. Based on information gathered during this time, Ms. Berger will design a program to address your daughter’s specific challenges and meet her individual needs and goals.
Step 2 – Skill Building
Next, your daughter will meet one-on-one with Ms. Berger, who delivers the program in a relaxed setting that helps build trust and communication. Your daughter will discuss issues and learn new skills in a step-by-step fashion. Girl Power utilizes role-playing, individual challenges, open dialogue and skill building techniques.
Step 3 – Parent Involvement
After 8 weekly sessions, parents are invited to meet with the program director to discuss their daughter’s progress, and develop strategies for continued development of healthy self-esteem.
If you have a daughter age 10-14, you know how difficult this phase of her young life can be. She faces a range of challenges – from friendship troubles, school stress and self-esteem issues, to family conflicts and moodiness.
