  • PMD: 4,8
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. develop a culturally relevant intervention/counseling curriculum for group setting.
  2. identify strengths and obstacles in group settings.
  3. collaborate with teachers and school personnel to collect behavioral data.


What, if any, behavioral supports are available to Black girls in K–12 settings? A culturally relevant intervention/counseling curriculum was implemented with a Black girl group in an urban, elementary school utilizing affirmations, Black historical figures, and a behavioral skills training program. The curriculum development, along with the initial implementation of the program will be discussed including anecdotal data from participants, as well as limitations and obstacles faced in the process. Black girls are powerful!
