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.
Adolescent Girls’ Group (Ages 11-13)
A group focusing on issues affecting young adolescents including maintaining healthy friendships, decision making, stress reduction, bullying, self-esteem and conflict resolution. Groups meet weekly on Monday evenings at 6pm. Adolescent psychologists will help pave the stepping stones a child may need to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
New Groups Forming: We are currently in the process of forming the following groups:
Adults with ADHD
Young Adult Transitions Group
DBT Skills Group
If you are looking to help your child develop social skills and learn how to interact with others, then group therapy might be right for you. With the help of our licensed child psychologists and adolescent psychologist, your child will be able to interact with children their own age and learn the proper ways to handle social interactions outside of the group therapy sessions.
