You may have noticed your child having difficulty socializing, developing close relationships, or maybe just interacting with strangers. Behavioral traits might include issues like interrupting people mid-sentence, taking people’s things without permission, intruded on private conversations or activities. You as a parent may want to consider group therapy, where your child will be able to interact with strangers of the same age.
Group therapy allows individuals to learn, share, grow and develop new skills in a safe space. ADHD, Mood and Behavior Center runs groups for children, adolescents, teens and adults to address a wide range of mental health issues. All groups are run by licensed clinical social workers or behavioral psychologists. New patients must attend one intake session with a therapist prior to entering the group. These are the current groups we offer:
Social Skills Group (Ages 6-10)
These groups focus on building and maintaining friendships, social problem solving, communication, teamwork and conflict resolution. Groups meet weekly on Saturday mornings at 9am or 10am depending on their age. A licensed child psychologist will help the group develop skills to overcome their issues and display proper ways to interact with others.
