Group Coaching for Girls

“For those parents who have preteen and teenage daughters, this program is a life-saver.” –Sheree D, Rockland, MA, daughter, age 13

The Sassy Sisterhood Girls’ Group is a model of structured support groups for girls from 9-18 years. It is designed to foster self-awareness, help girls maintain authentic connection with peers and adult women in their community, counter trends toward self-doubt, and allow for genuine self-expression through verbal sharing and creative activity.

How does it work?
Businesses, schools, or parent groups hire Dr. Robyn or one of her colleagues to come to their location and work with the girls in a group setting. A group of girls of similar age and development meet with their facilitator. During this time, the girls take turns talking and listening to one another respectfully about their concerns and interests. The girls express themselves further through creative or focused activities such as role playing, drama, journaling, poetry, drama, dance, drawing, collage, clay, and so on.

Often themes and topics are introduced which relate to the girls’ lives, such as being a girl, trusting ourselves, friendships, body image, goals, sexuality, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, competition, and decision-making. Special guests, teachers, professional speakers and experts are brought in for special activities such as dance, self defense, and other discussions.
Private phone coaching for girl-focused programs, girl-focused businesses, school personnel, or anyone who is really focused on making the lives better for girls and young women.
