Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the issues of adaptation in an easy question-and-answer format and shares the practice wisdom researchers gained as they offered the Taking Charge group curriculum in the real world of public schools. School-based clinical studies on the Taking Charge group tell us that it is an effective intervention with adolescent mothers. The chapter answered the top 10 questions asked by school professionals who were using or considering the Taking Charge group at their schools. These questions concerned marketing, cooperating with teachers, flexibility of sessions, school policies, resources, and training issues. The Taking charge group curriculum appears to be highly adaptable to most public school settings.
