Synopses & Reviews
Young people are hungry and capable of engaging in meaningful explorations of themselves and the world around them; adolescent girls especially have a deep desire and capacity to know themselves and explore their own spirituality. Girls Rising is a workbook of activities designed for educators, mental health clinicians, youth workers, parents, and, in some cases, peer educators working with girls ages 1317 that provides a process for them to explore and develop their emotional, social, and spiritual selves. Jacksons guide offers teenage girls a unique opportunity to engage with their changing selves and their environment from a deeply soulful and creative place.
