LeCroy and Daley provide a systematic approach to addressing those issues. Their framework incorporates new information and research about adolescent girls and conceptualizes gender-specific developmental tasks as part of a Go Girls curriculum. These developmental tasks for girls in early adolescence include: achieving a competent gender role identification, establishing an acceptable body image, developing a positive self-image, developing satisfactory peer relationships, establishing independence through responsible decision making, understanding sexuality, learning to obtain help and access resources, and learning to plan for the future.There is a companion workbook for participants in the Go Girls program, or for therapists, parents, and educators working with girls.
