This group is meant to support female adolescents in their journey to develop their identities and build their self-esteem. The shared stories and empathy from others who are having similar experiences can be insightful and empowering.  This group creates a safe, confidential space to discuss and receive feedback on the trials and tribulations that come along with the process of adolescence.  In addition, the group provides coping skills and valuable educational information that can be used to get through the challenges attached to entering adulthood.

One of the main tasks of adolescence is to achieve an identity—not necessarily a knowledge of who we are, but a clarification of the range of what we might become, a set of self-references by which we can make sense of our responses, and justify our decisions and goals.

I feel that adolescence has served its purpose when a person arrives at adulthood with a strong sense of self-esteem, the ability to relate intimately, to communicate congruently, to take responsibility, and to take risks. The end of adolescence is the beginning of adulthood. What hasn’t been finished then will have to be finished later.

During adolescence imagination is boundless. The urge toward self-perfection is at its peak. And with all their self- absorption and personalized dreams of glory, youth are in pursuit of something larger than personal passions, some values or ideals to which they might attach their imaginations.
