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
