The Teen Girl’s Guide to Empowerment is an interactive workbook full of meaningful scenarios, tools, and resources designed for teen girls between the ages of 12 and 18 years of age.
The Teen Girl’s Guide to Empowerment covers some of the evidence-based social, personal, and educational challenges that teenage girls face today in a straightforward and no-nonsense way.
This workbook is meant as a tool for the teen girl and supportive adult towards empowerment, inspiration, and self-awareness. No one can predict how a situation will play out beforehand, but just knowing that certain possibilities may exist in your teen’s life is the first step towards empowerment. The exercises are designed to bring awareness and positivity while suggesting preventative measures that young women can incorporate into their daily lives. When using this book some sections may be skipped until the teen is older and more receptive to receiving some of the messaging.
- Personal Growth
- Sexual Orientation
- Pregnancy and Birth Control
- Social Issues
- Social Media
Topics covered include cyberbullying, sexting, body image, bullying, reproductive coercion, one night stand, personal hygiene, experiencing a heartbreak, sexual intercourse, drinking, drugs, harassment, hate crimes, contraception, and much more.
Beryl Davis has written a very important book. Teens face a frequently overwhelming range of challenges as they pass through adolescence. Ms. Davis has created a workbook the covers dozens of challenges and issues that teenage girls may face. Topics range from discovering a love for books to reproductive coercion, sexting to running away, and first love to break up violence. Each topic is clearly described, discussed, and includes thought provoking follow up questions. I highly recommend this book.
