Here in the U.S. there is a SELF ESTEEM EPIDEMIC among GIRLS, who are socialized to underestimate their value. Girls are 7 times more likely to be depressed than boys of the same age, and 7 in 10 girls believe that they are not good enough or don't measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members.
During our groups, we explore how our 'culture' and one of the major influencing factors of the epidemic - the Media- influence this epidemic- and we highlight the ways other cultures support and honor the building blocks of self esteem in women: intuition, boundaries, and integrity. We model this within fun guided group exercises, rituals discussions and take home projects. WE help each teen “find their gift” and align with it so they can feel empowered to step into womanhood fully.
