We believe that all children deserve to have friendships, and all children are capable of having them, even if they find themselves lost. Therefore, we take a Skills-Based approach that provides kids with the tools they need to succeed socially.
It’s important for a child to understand and identify the reasons they struggle socially. For example, kids often struggle socially due to a lack of confidence, fear of judgment, or not having interacted with peers. This way, we can address the root issue holding them back and manage their anxiety.
The group facilitator provides social skills and concepts throughout the five-session course. We start with fundamentals, then work our way up to advanced skills.
Role Playing In Peers
In the Social Skills group members are invited to participate in various role plays. This allows them to practice skills in a safe space before applying them in the outside world. The group members are given feedback by their peers and the group facilitator to create a collaborative and supportive learning environment.
Group members learn to embrace who they are and what makes them unique. As a result, children and teens will recognize what they have to offer others, which inspires confidence.
Social skills are an important part of the daily life of a child. As such, these skills are a huge determining factor of happiness for a child. Everyone wants to have friends (even those who say they don’t), but kids often feel at a loss for how to form and grow relationships with their peers. However, it is not as complicated as it may seem. Most kids who struggle socially simply need to know how to approach social interactions. It will become natural, but for many, it isn’t at first, and that’s okay!
