Teen Safe: A Healthy Relationship Group for Teen Girls 12-15
Healthy relationships are a crucial part of adolescent development and individual growth. As children grow into adolescents, they become increasingly reliant on peers for friendship, intimacy, and validation. Some children enter their teenage years poorly prepared for the challenges of developing strong and healthy relationships that will form the basis of adult life. Girls, in particular, struggle with finding a balance between seeking acceptance from peers and maintaining their sense of individuality. They can be at risk for dating and relationship violence, and they are exposed to new and potentially unsafe social situations as they venture out beyond familiar environments. Similarly, on the Internet, girls can be at risk as they explore new websites and chat rooms.
The Teen Safe Curriculum is a 4 module group developed by the Center for Young Women’s Health for use with adolescent girls (ages: 12-15). The modules include: healthy relationships, safety in relationships, safety on the streets, and safety on the internet. Each module is designed to take place in 1-1.5 hours so they may require modification to meet time constraints within your school.
