Groups are designed to teach your children valuable life skills, such as making new friends, practicing healthy boundaries, resolving conflicts, using good manners, managing their anger, and expressing their feelings. These skills will be taught and practiced in a safe and confidential group environment with their peers, using games, art, role plays and another fun and effective therapeutic techniques. Children should be comfortable with reading and writing.
We are also seeking teen mentors for this group, 13 years and older. Mentors will not have to use their health insurance or pay any fees or copays, as their time will be volunteered.
Enrollment is typically 6-8 children and sessions are held weekly for 50 minutes. Each group lasts 6 weeks, however, children have the option to repeat sessions if your family feels like they would benefit from ongoing participation.
