    Using a narrative approach, teenagers are challenged to learn about themselves, about each other and about how to take control of their lives. The learning is presented in a series of lessons with comprehensive facilitator instructions and materials designed to engage teenagers in both group and individual activities. A story and characters provide a full range of emotions, from the overwhelming feelings of angst and anger to empathy, friendship support and happiness. The material complements the secondary SEAL agenda. A comprehensive guide will help the facilitator to capture the student's emotional world and turn their energies into meaningful and constructive projects. It also provides students with tools to practice and develop their emotional and social intelligence.
