“Voices” Girl Empowerment Group

 

 

Voices is a unique approach for adolescent and young women, in helping them celebrate their “true selves”. The program includes sections on self, connecting with others, and healthy living, which is suggested as 16 group sessions. Each session has an introduction section, a teaching topic, an interactive element (group discussion on different issues), an experimental section (implementing a new skill and learning other healthy coping skills), and a closing section to encourage reflection on the session. The program has theoretical components of gendered psychological development, attachment, resilience, trauma, and addiction. Trauma is addressed throughout the program and touches issues that are affected as a result, such as: self-esteem, body image, connections with others, good decision-making, and emotional wellness (Covington, 2012). There is not much research in this area of gender-approached interventions, however markers of a successful treatment would be based upon girls’ competencies and strengths and promotion of self-reliance.
