Summary "BAM! Boys Advocacy and Mentoring provides the first guidebook for group facilitators who want to lead strengths-based boys groups designed to foster communication skills and emotional connections. Based on years of research and refined over the course of countless sessions run by the authors, the program has been field-tested and tailored for use either in the school setting or outside. Over a series of group sessions, participants are encouraged to understand their emotions and interpersonal interactions, strengthening their identity through emotional growth and communication with peers about personal issues. The activities are designed to be engaging across age groups, and the individual exercises and program structure can be modified to fit into any existing school or community-based mentoring system."--BOOK JACKET.
