The sunny weather is here and so is our Spring Workshop!

BIG question: Who are you?

A daughter? A student? An athlete? A friend? 

For most of us, many of these titles are true, but there’s a lot more to learn about who we are in on the inside, regardless of what external titles we have.

This 6 week workshop will help you discover yourself, meet friends and navigate all the twists and turns high school can send you way. We promise, we will have a lot of fun 🙂

In this introductory workshop, participants will learn how to “be your own spark” by learning the foundational principles of Fairytale Reform.

Who: 9 & 10th grade girls 

When: Saturday mornings (10-11:15am) from April 11th-May 16th

Where: South Tulsa, OK (specific location provided upon enrollment)

The workshop focuses largely on two kinds of relationships…

Relationship with self: In order for young women to succeed and thrive in all areas of life, they must KNOW for themselves that they are loved, valuable and worthy. Our participants will learn where true self-worth comes from. After completing the activities and curriculum in the workshop, the young women will see big improvements in the areas of…

  • Self-compassion
  • Body image
  • Sense of self
  • Self-respect
  • Mental health

Relationships with others: Once a young woman is secure in who she is, the challenge becomes building relationships with other in order to have fulfilling relationships with peers, teachers, and parents. The course will focus on helping participants with…

  • Conflict resolution
  • Emotion control
  • Expressing emotion in a healthy, respectful way
  • Setting healthy boundaries with peers

Here’s a basic outline of the curriculum we will cover:

Week One: Who Am I?

– We kick off the workshop with this big foundational question and help participants learn who they truly are on the inside vs. who social media or peers tell them they need to be.
Week Two: Reacting vs. Responding
– In week two, participants will get an intro into how their brains work and why we respond to conflict and uncomfortable situations the way we do. They will then learn tools to control emotional reactions and learn to respond in more productive ways.
Week Three: Breakups and Endings
-Breakups and lost friendships can be one of the toughest parts of high school. In this week, we will talk through some of the reason friendships and relationships end and provide coping strategies that will help participants heal from breakups and come out stronger on the other side with more self-love.
Week Four: Comparison
– The only person we need to compare ourselves to is ourselves! Participants will learn why this is important and how to “stay in their own lane” to become the best they can be.
Week Five: Quieting Your Inner Mean Girl
– In week five, Valerie Larson LCSW, will walk the girls through a powerful exercise to help them quiet their inner critic and speak more kindly to themselves. 
Week Six: Be Your Own Spark
– To wrap up the workshop, we focus on the Fairytale Reform motto, “Be Your Own Spark”. The girls will learn how to tap into their own passions, interests and strengths so they can live a life they love, specific to who they are. 

Each week, class will start off with an ice breaker game, catch up on the week and then dive into the curriculum! The curriculum consists of activities, worksheets, conversations, and weekly challenges to complete before the next meeting.

Space in the workshop is limited to 10 participants. Each participant will be provided with a workbook and journal. Click HERE to join us.
