Synopsis: The Triad Girls’ Group (LeVasseur & Clark, 2003) is an intervention designed to help at-risk adolescent girls develop age appropriate coping skills, healthy interpersonal relationships, and capacities for self-care. The curriculum was developed in response to the need for an integrated gender-specific intervention addressing substance use, emotional problems and trauma related disorders. The current study is the first empirical evaluation of the group’s effectiveness, and this paper will present preliminary research findings in this area.
