Social Skills Training for Adults
At the Social Skills Center, we’re firm believers that social skills are the most important skills in one's life - and are even more important than school grades! Great communicators and exceptional listeners have a strong likelihood of being successful, regardless of how far they went in school or what their profession may be.
Our coaches 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 social skills training can help adults with autism, anxiety, and depression live more social and fulfilling lives.
Our online social skills coaching program has a wide variety of proven benefits to our adult participants. Let’s learn more about how the group sessions work for our adult social skills training classes.
The Advantages of Social Skills Training
As a participant in one of our social skills groups,
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 and colleagues. During our social skills training classes for adults each participant trains each participant to improve their understanding of others’ perspectives, reading other peoples’ reactions, 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. The coaches, and your fellow group members, encourage you to practice your newfound social skills not only within the group but also at home, at work, and in social situations.
Overcome Social Anxiety and Depression
Social anxiety and depression are issues addressed by our social skills training classes for adults. These can both negatively affect your ability to interact with other people. Social anxiety may make you uncomfortable when talking to others or saying how you feel. We’ll help you overcome those problems by teaching you how to express yourself effectively and empathize with others.
Steps in Joining Our Group Coaching Sessions
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 15-minute consultation with Dr. Haley. During the meeting, he’ll ask you about your current social functioning and answer any questions you may have about the program.
2. Intake Appointment
Next, we’ll schedule a time to meet with one of our coaches. They’ll facilitate what’s called an intake appointment. This 50-minute session assesses your social 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 effectively during coaching.
3. Individual Sessions
Before you participate group coaching sessions, your coach will have one to two individual video conference sessions with you. The coach will use this time to develop rapport and also determine which group will be the best match for you. We’ll also revisit your expectations and goals for the program and clarify them as needed.
4. Start of Group Sessions
The next session will be with the group. We always match our group members by both age AND level of functioning.
