The struggles and often compelling social dramas of middle school may be either long-forgotten or intentionally blocked by adulthood, but many middle schoolers could benefit from guidance during this difficult period of their lives. This article presents the rationale, along with the basic contours, of a six-session program that has been developed to help young adolescents give voice to key developmental struggles. The program goals and the overall approach are outlined, followed by a brief description of the ways in which each of the six sessions (lessons) of the program addresses particular challenges for young adolescents.
