Girls Empowered Summer Workshop Series
for ages 13-18

A resonant relationship with a woman, meaning a relationship in which a girl can speak freely and hear her voice clearly resounded as a voice worth listening to and taking seriously - a voice that engages the heart and mind of another and calls forth response - is associated with psychological health and development.
— Gilligan, 1990

8 WEEKLY SESSIONS TO GIVE YOUR DAUGHTER THE SKILLS SHE NEEDS TO THRIVE AS A STRONG AND EMPOWERED FEMALE!

RESEARCH SAYS THAT:

  • Girls' self-esteem peaks at age 9 and then plummets

  • Girls are 3x more likely than boys to develop a negative body image

  • More than 90% of teen girls want to change at least one of their physical aspects

  • 20% of teens will experience depression at some point

  • A supportive environment with positive female role models battles these statistics!

DOES YOUR DAUGHTER:

  • Often put herself down or struggle accepting a compliment?

  • Take what she sees in the media and society as ideals that she's not achieving?

  • Talk about being unhappy with her body or physical traits?

  • Have difficulty being assertive and standing up for herself with peers and "mean girls"?

  • Struggle understanding and managing her emotions?

  • Tend to put others' needs before her own?

  • Have a tendency to get overwhelmed and struggle with managing stress?

  • Struggle with being true to who she is and fit in with peers?

HOW WILL THIS WORKSHOP SERIES HELP YOUR DAUGHTER?

  • She will learn how to accept and value herself, so that she will be more likely to stay true to her own values and be less likely to compromise them to please others.

  • She will learn skills and techniques to start rewiring her brain differently AKA start training her brain to focus on her strengths and not her (perceived) weaknesses!

  • She will learn how to be assertive AND kind - how to say "no" while still maintaining who she is.

  • She will learn to critically challenge the messages she gets from the media. The first step in fighting these messages is to be aware of them!

  • She will learn skills to help her feel empowered by understanding and managing her strong emotions.
