Does your middle schooler have difficulty making and keeping friends? Does she report feeling bullied at school or in social situations? Does he need help expressing emotions appropriately? Are you or your child worried about her transition to middle school and fitting in socially? Has your middle schooler been diagnosed with Social Anxiety, Asperger’s, Autism, or AD/HD? Or does he shy away from social interactions? Because middle school can be challenging both academically and socially, these years are often considered to be some of the most stressful for kids! Our Middle School Social Skills Group teaches children the social skills needed to make these transitional years a success! Some children need a little help learning social skills! Through a series of discussions, exercises, role-play, worksheets, videos, and projects, your child will enhance social skills and self-esteem. Topics include:
Greeting people, making conversation, and joining a group
Being a good listener and showing interest in others
Manners — Saying “thank you” and apologizing quickly and sincerely
Making, meeting and keeping friends
Dealing with disappointments and friendship “drama”
Not talking about peers behind their backs
Dealing with cliques and how to handle being teased or left out
Battling peer pressure
Respecting yourself and others
Self-esteem, self-confidence boosters, and mood improvement
