Groups For Girls
We are please to continue our girls' groups this summer with Laura Byrnes, LCSWA, and Lorie Lowans-Wells, LCSW! One group is for middle school age girls, and we left open another spot on the calendar for at least one more group for younger or older girls, depending on interest. These groups are for girls with and without clinical diagnoses who are socially anxious or otherwise have difficulty making and/or keeping friends.
Groups For Guys
And of course we have the return of our Summer Social Skills Groups For Guys, with Solomon Kobes, LCSW, and co-faciliated by Lorie and Laura! Groups are available for boys ages 7-18. No clinical diagnosis is needed to participate in groups, though historically many guys have ADHD and/or High Functioning Autism/Aspergers.
All groups meet weekly for eight weeks, from June into August. Our eighth and final meeting will be a feedback meeting for parents only.
Participants will enjoy games and activities aimed to encourage sportsmanship, cooperation, non-verbal communication, and social boundaries. The therapist will provide a safe, structured environment, direct instruction, and facilitate peer-to-peer feedback.
