Social Skills 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

Instead of feeling shame, guilt or a false sense of power by trying to manipulate, control or dominate others, our group members learn how to experience authentic well-being.
In our social skills groups, 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.
Very few children see adults modeling effective, healthy responses to conflict. In our groups, they learn how to see another’s point of view as valid, leading to greater understanding and cooperation.
