Social Skills & Self-Esteem Group for Girls

         

Understanding and employing age appropriate social skills is critical for social and academic success. Social and academic behavior are inextricably linked. Though academics are taught in a highly structured, goal oriented manner, social skills are typically not taught in this manner. As a result some teenagers do not develop social skills at the same rate as their peers. This is especially true for people who suffer from ADHD/ADD, anxiety, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Social Communication Disorder, Learning Disabilities and other conditions. Bullying, low self-esteem, melancholy, social isolation and avoidance can all result from difficulties with peer socialization. The Socialites Social Skills and Self-Esteem Groups for Girls provide a safe, friendly, and psychoeducational environment in which group members benefit from planned courses, activities and discussions.

The group also allows individuals to share, examine and process some of the emotional or behavioral consequences of their social issues with an emphasis on coping methods for improving emotional regulation, distress tolerance and assertive communication.
