Mary Pipher's awakened the social service and education communities to the need for gender-specific programs tailored to the unique issues girls face. LeCroy and Daley provide a systematic approach to addressing those issues.

These developmental tasks for girls in early adolescence include: achieving a competent gender role identification, establishing an acceptable body image, developing a positive self-image, developing satisfactory peer relationships, establishing independence through responsible decision making, understanding sexuality, learning to obtain help and access resources, and learning to plan for the future.
