{giveaway} *Winner Announced* Girls in Real Life Situations (G.I.R.L.S.), Grades 6-12: School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest Day 3

Girls in Real Life Situations, Grades 6-12: Group Counseling Activities for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development (Book and CD)I am so excited to host the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest, which is 10 days of daily giveaways starting September 1st and ending on September 10th!

Today is day three of the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest.

Today's giveaway for the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest is Girls in Real Life Situations, Grades 6-12: Group Counseling Activities for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development (Book and CD) by Julia V. Taylor  and Shannon Trice-Black from Research Press.

Girls in Real Life Situations, Grades 6-12: Group Counseling Activities for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development (Book and CD) is one of my most used curricula.  I have used activities from G.I.R.L.S. in groups on topics such as self-esteem, grief and loss, children of incarcerated parents and beyond.  I have even used activities from G.I.R.L.S with boys (gasp!)!

One of the activities I have facilitated the most from G.I.R.L.S. is the "Wall of Support" activity.  During the session students build a wall with blocks and then build a wall together. They then make their own wall using construction paper. We then made a wall as a group of people who support us. If you watched the tour of my office from last year or looked at the pictures of my office you will see the "Wall of Support" under my whiteboard. Students love this activity. I have also had students make their own personal wall in individual sessions with students.

The G.I.R.L.S curriculum conveniently comes with a CD with all the handouts that you need to print, including pre and post tests! It is great to be able to print from the CD instead of having to photocopy pages (we all know that photocopies don't always come out like you want them to).

Having met Julia V. Taylor in person and presented with her at the ASCA National Conference in Seattle, WA, this curriculum is even more special to me.  Julia is an amazing person full of energy and creative ideas; the G.I.R.L.S curriculum is a testament to her level of enthusiasm for school counseling!

Girls in Real Life Situations, Grades 6-12: Group Counseling Activities for Enhancing Social and Emotional Development (Book and CD) would make a great addition to any middle school or high school counselor's curricula.
