Social Skills Training for Adults
At the Social Skills Center, we’re firm believers that social skills are the most important ones to hone. They bring the most success to your life, apart from your education. We run a social skills group for adults. We provide this service in-person and online through the Zoom platform.
Our facilitators are led by Dr. Christopher Haley, a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 25 years of experience helping children, adolescents, and adults learn essential social skills.
Our online social skills training program has a wide variety of proven benefits to our adult participants. Learn more about how our group sessions work.
The Advantages of Social Skills Training
As a participant of our social skills group,
you may experience the following benefits:
Handle Everyday Interactions Better
We’ll help you improve the way you initiate and maintain conversations as well as handle conflict with your peers. Our team trains each participant to improve their understanding of others’ perspectives, reading other peoples’ reactions and body language, and more.
Our sessions place you into a group with peers who accept and understand you unconditionally. We provide a safe space for you to express your feelings and emotions. By the end of each meeting, you’ll surely find a new acquaintance.
Become More Confident
The Social Skills Center team also pushes you to become more confident in your ability to communicate and interact with others. Our facilitators and peers encourage you to practice your newfound social skills not only within the group but also at home, at work, and with friends.
Overcome Your Mental Health Issues
Mental health issues like social anxiety and depression negatively affect your ability to interact with other people. Social anxiety disorder may make you uncomfortable when talking about yourself or saying what you feel. We’ll help you overcome those problems by teaching you how to express yourself properly and empathize with others.
Steps in Joining Our Group Coaching Session
Being a part of our group coaching program only takes
a few steps. Here’s how it works.
Send us an email or call our office to schedule a free telephone consultation. During the meeting, we’ll ask you about your current situation and answer any questions you may have about the program. Once you agree to our terms, we’ll move on to helping you find a group.
2. Intake Appointment
Next, we’ll hand you over to one of our coaches. They’ll facilitate what’s called an intake appointment. This 50-minute session gauges your strengths and areas that need improvement when it comes to social skills. This way, we know more about your personality and how to communicate with you properly during training.
3. Individual Sessions
Before you participate in a group session, your coach will have one to two individual video conference sessions with you. It develops rapport and helps us determine which group will be the best match for you. We’ll also revisit your expectations and goals for the program and clarify them.
4. Start of Group Sessions
Your next session will be with a group of your peers. Before or after every meeting, we’ll discuss your progress and goals to see how your current group sessions are helping. Over time, we’ll also determine whether you need to be transferred to another group.
