Social Skills

Sometimes children find their relationships with other children tricky to manage.  They may find it difficult to find and maintain friendships, this often leads to low self-esteem and feelings of isolation. The Social Skills group offers a familiar setting where the children are encouraged to consider how their behaviour affects others and what the consequences of unfriendly behaviour can mean.  The children are encouraged to focus on their many positive strengths and work towards supporting other children in the group.  They are given strategies to help build friendships and, if necessary, deal with anger.  Each week they are encouraged to try out a new strategy and discuss how effective it was. Throughout the sessions the children are given clear guidance in a very supportive and positive environment.
