Girls will work on developing positive self-talk, challenging irrational and anxiety-producing thoughts, and learning relaxation techniques. The goal in coping with anxiety is not to eliminate it altogether, but to make it manageable. Girls can gain a sense of empowerment over worries through the support of the group and new friendships with one another.
The group will meet on Wednesdays from March 2 to June 1 from 4:10-5 p.m. at JSSA's building (200 Wood Hill Road) in Rockville. The cost is $65 per session, as well as a one-time $30 materials fee. Pre-registration is required by calling 301-816-2633. Jennifer Flajser, LCPC, will facilitate the group.
