This summer, two psychologists at Child and Family Development are offering Social Skills groups for kids, ages 7-12 years old.

There are available spots for the following groups:  

BOYS GROUP: July 27-30

GIRLS GROUP: August 3-6

Objectives

The Social Skills Group is designed to be an enjoyable way for children to get support and insight from their peers, with the facilitation from a child psychologist. The psychologist leads discussions and introduces positive strategies for interacting with others. 

Activities and topics will include:

  • confidence building
  • conversational skills
  • coping strategies
  • mindfulness
  • peer review
  • role play
  • social situation practice response
  • turn taking 

This experience may be an adjunct to individual therapy and can be extremely valuable in helping your child feel and be more connected to others.  Each person participates in group discussions and will have the opportunity to share experiences and get feedback from others.

Prior to the first group session, a psychologist will complete a brief screen to ensure that participation is beneficial, largely based on conversational skills.
