' Lives Gain New Direction At Girls Living Center By SUSAN SZEKELY Something new has been added at Girls Living Center. The Center aims to help "pre-delinquent" girls live on better terms with their families and with society. Until Jan. 1 of this year the center had two ways of progressing towards those goals. It provided a place where girls could get away from their families for a while and break the chain of hostilities between themselves and their parents. It also provided group therapy to help the girls think productively about their problems and to change their attitudes toward homCi school and the world to more responsible and fruitful ones. Since Jan. 1, the center has also begun providing group therapy for the girls' parents. This therapy, under the guidance of Milton Frank, is an attempt to work through some of the problems that exist in the girls' homes so they will not return to face the same stresses. What are these parents like and what are their daughters like? Are problem children simply the product of problem parents? According to Mr. Frank, this viewpoint is a "cliche and a great oversimplification." "Most parents think they've made a sincere attempt to raise their children well. They feel failure, hurt and confusion. "Why did this happen to me?" . they ask. They don't understand the linkage that has led to the current state of affairs. "Throughout h i s t o r y , there have always been problems between adolescents of any generation and the adults of that generation." In our age, he feels, the deterioration of family unity has contributed to making these problems more severe. Robert Douglas, therapist for the girls, believes that they are the same as other teenagers but tend to be more impulsive and go to greater extremes than usual. What precisely have these girls done? Some are good students. Some, on the other hand, have had trouble in school. Perhaps they've failed courses or been guilty of truancy. Some may have run away from home or taken up with "gangs." But all the girls have had severe problems with their parents. "It's not that they haven't been fed or clothed or taken care of physically," said Mrs. Dennis Greene, executive director of the center. "Communication has simply broken down to the point where the parents cannot handle the girls and the girls will not accept discipline from their parents." Girls are referred to the center by the Juvenile Court, Child Guidance Clinic, the welfare department and other s o c i a l agencies. Each one is evaluated and screened to discover whether she is likely to benefit from residence at the center. "A truly tough delinquent won't make it," said Mr. Douglas. "She can just walk out the door. "The other extreme might not benefit either. The girls in the center now are 'rough, and ready' and a passive, shrinking violet would just not belong. The center attempts to be as much like a home as possible. The girls go to whatever school they'd been attending before coming to the center. They have parties to which they can invite boyfriends and girlfriends. They are given as much freedom as can be allowed depending on past behavior. The aim of the center is to help the girls build inner restraints and to practice living in as real a situation as possible. Residence in the · home, as well as group * therapy, is directed towards ; effecting changes within the '. girl. j What are the group · therapy sessions like? , Mr. Douglas functions as ', a leader to stimulate dis- ./ cussion, comments and questions. "I try to get .... them to talk about their £ own problems on a produc- !v tive level." · ; A typical exchange may : \ go like this: " ',·· Girl: Teenagers wouldn't % drink if adults didn't buy ·'. them liquor. % Mr. Douglas: Does some- .' one take you down and \ force you take the liquor? Girl: No. As a matter of ;1 fact, it's real hard to find J someone to buy it for you. ', · "I try to direct them to : ; think about their cnvn in- /' volvernent and their own responsibility for what they do," said Mr. Douglas. ',j "I can't say 'what would '''·:· your mother think 1 or try · to appeal to the girls' feel- -;' ing of social responsibility. :::'. It's necessary to discuss '··; things on a selfish basis and to ask 'What does this mean ' j to you? How does this fit in with your plans.' " ' "The girls are not in- :_ trospective, not bothered ;and not too unhappy. They \, are socially disoriented, in *: trouble because of what · they do. "In contrast, the neu- '! rotic teenager is likely to ; be an excellent student, a 'real good kid' but someone .' who is very troubled inside." ij Mr. Frank, in his sessions ' with the parents, attempts ; to encourage free-flowing discussion. The group focuses on problems fairly typical to all parents of teenagers such as dating, communication, school, and the roles of love and discipline.
