The ‘Voices’ program was developed by Stephanie Covington, Ph.D., L.C.S.W. Dr. Covington is recognized for her pioneering work in the area of women’s issues, specializing in the development and implementation of gender-responsive and trauma-informed services.
‘Voices’ is a curriculum-based program created to address the unique needs of adolescent girls and young women. It encourages them to seek and celebrate their “true selves” by providing a safe space, encouragement, structure, and the support they need to embrace their journeys of self-discovery. The program includes modules on self, connecting with others, healthy living, and the journey ahead.
Some of the topics are, but not limited to:
- Pressures of social media;
- Gender exploration;
- Human sex trafficking;
- Binge drinking;
- Texting – social media; and
- Self-harm/eating disorders.
‘Voices’ is based on the realities of girls’ lives and the principles of gender responsivity; it is also grounded in theory, research, and clinical experience. The Voices curriculum advocates a strength-based approach and uses a variety of therapeutic approaches, including psychoeducational cognitive-behavioral. It incorporates mindfulness body-and expressive arts.
JusticeWorks provides the ‘Voices’ program in conjunction with case management services.
