Talk with Teens About What Matters to Them has been tested with thousands of teens in many kids of schools (plus community centers, churches and workshops). Its guided discussions are proven 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 one another. Introductory and background materials help all group leaders, including those with minimal experience, feel prepared and secure in their role. Sessions can be easily customized to best meet the needs of your group. Includes a CD-ROM with all the reproducible handouts from the book.
