Social Skills Training for Children, Teens, and Adults

“Our social skills services for children, adolescents, and adults are based on the premise that social skills (e.g. communication skills, active listening, friend-making, reading non-verbal social cues, networking abilities) are essential life skills that foster success, happiness, and health. Our goal is to teach these skills in a supportive and nurturing environment, with the expectation that the skills will be generalized to real-world experiences and relationships.”
– Dr. Haley

Ways The Social Skills Center Helps

Social Anxiety Therapy

Decrease Anxiety

In our individual and group social coaching sessions, we teach children, adolescents and adults how to relax and “settle,” so that they can have more effective responses to the people and situations they face every day.

Social & People Skills Classes

Improve Self-Esteem

Instead of feeling shame, embarrassment, or anxiety in social situations, our coaching clients learn how to be confident with others. Our classes act as a kind of social anxiety therapy and we regularly teach passive clients how to be assertive. 

Online Social Skills & Communication Training

Communicate Clearly

In our online social skills training program, clients get to practice with their peers and learn by doing, rather than trying to “regurgitate” statements they learned in a book or heard someone else say. Learning social skills is so important for all ages.

Social Skills Training Online:

Resolve Conflicts

Most people don’t realize that conflicts can be a “win-win” for both parties involved. At our online social skills training programs, kids, teens, and adults learn how to see another’s point of view, leading to greater understanding and empathy.
