High school comes with a number of new challenges. The new environment and its new social demands can be overwhelming and stress-inducing for many teenagers. Teens are also experiencing hormonal shifts and developing a sense of identity.
This group will help your child build a healthy foundation for social skills. Gaining social acceptance plays an instrumental role in adolescents’ school success. During this time, developing caring and supportive relationships is essential to student engagement, motivation, and achievement.
This program provides a safe environment for high schoolers to practice social skills amongst their peers. Participants give and receive real-time feedback through participating in role-play exercises with their peers to build confidence, self-esteem, and resilience.
