Social Skills Groups for Children and Adolescents

Social skills groups are an effective therapy for helping children develop effective social interaction skills. Therapy groups offer opportunities to observe social skills, practice using them, and receive feedback.

What’s Involved in Social Skills Groups?

Although the format can vary, groups generally consist of instruction and practice of targeted social skills. Social skills groups may also use video modeling, role-play, social coaching, and skill practice outside of the group sessions (i.e., “homework”). Additionally, parent training is often a key component in promoting social skills growth. At Positive Kids, we strive to identify innovative strategies to increase group members’ application of new skills outside of the group and to enhance the efficacy of our interventions.

Who runs Social Skills Groups?

At Positive Kids, our groups are led by registered social workers and psychotherapists and at times assisted by students in clinical placement so we can offer the opportunity for more comprehensive treatment of social needs.
