Much work has been done to reduce discipline, drop-out, drug use, aggression and criminal behaviors related to adolescent females. California schools and communities continue to struggle with gender-appropriate prevention and intervention strategies. Agencies, for the most part, still rely on strategies focusing on male adolescents and adapt them for females. This conference will focus on what has been implemented successfully, based upon current research, for adolescent females.
Sessions will examine critical issues such as social media use and the link to depression, opioid and other drug use, girl to girl bullying, girls in gangs, human trafficking. Each session will discuss the trends and strategies. The conference will have several sessions examining successful strategies including school interventions, mentoring, girls circles, alternative education programs, building connections, youth leadership and more.
