Editorial Reviews

Review

Girls in Real-Life Situations (G.I.R.L.S.) is an excellent resource for school districts and community groups that want to enhance the social and emotional development of middle school and high school girls. It provides practical, sensible, and perhaps most importantly replicable tools for practitioners to help girls navigate through the turbulent teen years. --Jill Cook, Assistant Director, American School Counselor Association

As a counselor educator, it is great to see a resource that hits on salient developmental themes, uses sound group principles (e.g., screening, icebreakers, follow up), and fosters discussion to make these often hidden topics explicit. It is also a compelling resource for me, as I try to help two daughters thrive. --Patrick Akos, Ph.D., School of Education, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

G.I.R.L.S. is an insightful exploration of the feelings and experiences that all young women have. Each of the lessons addresses a specific area of life that is a reality for girls today. Taylor and Trice-Black know how to connect with girls to help them reach for their dreams and overcome adversity. A must-have for anyone working with young women today! --Tamara Davis, Ph.D., School Counseling Coordinator, Marymount University

This book is all you need to lead a girls group in middle or high school. It's full of activities, thoughtful discussion questions and journal topics. Each section has more activities than you can complete during a group session. Required materials can be easily found in your own home (magazine pictures, index cards, string, etc.) Other counselors I know have used this in schools and I've used it with 8th-10th graders at church. It's up-to-date content and language make it relevant to present day girl situations. I highly recommend this!

I am a therapist and group coordinator for a private practice. When I started our office's group therapy program last year I knew I wanted to have a group that helped girls understand themself better and be more prepared for developing a richer character and better social skills. GOLD MINE!! This is IT! It has been such a huge success that we continue to offer it ever session. Schools, parents, other mental health therapist and professionals are calling my office to refer their clients to our group. Hands down a must have for anyone planning on leading a girls group.

I bought this book to be used for a Girls Group that I am running at the middle school age level. The activities have been really good. One of my real qualms with this book is that it only refers to girls having boyfriends. I know that a lot of middle school aged kids are really experimental and aren't sure who they prefer sexually. I think that it would be better to use a more neutral word like "partner" in the activities. But, I will say that the book is designed in a way that you can make custom changes if you are willing to do a little extra work.

I am using this in high school and it is working well. The font however, is a little childish for junior and senior girls.

I have begun to use this book with my 6th grade girls group and they love it! I also have the 3-5th grade book which is great because I can modify lessons based on the group's needs. I find that it is difficult to locate a psychoeducational book that is not boring and believe me this one has plenty of fun activities that teacher thought provoking lessons.

The layout of the lessons and the ease of use. Also, the option to choose from 4 lessons per area makes it easy to select based on time and the message you want to portray. I also like having a CD with reproducible documents. The information can also be used with boys as well--just need to change your lingo.

I bought this book hoping to be able to use a few of the interventions as I do ALOT of girls' groups working as a therapist at a school. I have been able to use all of these interventions. They are realistic, do not require lots of extra purchases of materials to complete the activities, and have been very effective. I have made some minimal changes with some of the exercises, such as, the one based on fears and anxieties in order to work for males in the group. This is a very good book. It is concise, realistic, and still creative without a lot of jargon and unnecessary supplies. I have bought the other edition for younger children, which has also been a tremendous help with my groups.
