Transitions and Closures in Girls Circle and The Council for Boys and Young Men

May 11, 2010 at 6:20 pm Leave a comment


Today we provide the Transitions and Closures TIP sheet.

This document is a rich resource that describes best practices to promote girls’ and boys’ resiliency as they move through transitions and groups, and when their circles and councils conclude.

Click HERE for your TIP sheet. We think you’ll love this resource. In it, we address the significance of changes and endings for youth, including youth with chronic traumas and multiple losses, common youth responses, our recommendations, and two case examples.  The TIP sheet is a guide to assist you in providing safe and strong connections for group members throughout the separations, coming and goings, and departures they will experience.

Originally, we announced our plan to host a teleconference to discuss this topic with you. However, we’re in a transition, ourselves! We decided to forego the conference because we are changing to a webinar format for better delivery of these topic-focused presentations, beginning this fall.

Thank you for visiting  our blog, and for joining our teleconferences.  Since we initiated them in 2009, we’ve had an ever-increasing number of attendees, which is a compliment and a privilege.  We want your time with us to be useful, efficient, and enjoyable, and look forward to our collective meetings again in the fall.

Meanwhile, we always welcome your questions, comments,  by email to:, or  phone, 707-794-9477, or Facebook at Girls Circle or at The Council for Boys and Young Men.  And now that you are here at our blog, come visit  again.

Best wishes on the transitions in each of your groups and programs.

Beth, Giovanna, Kitty, Vanessa and Moorea
