Groups are arranged according to the age of the child.
Through structured explanations, games and activities in a group setting, children learn the necessary skills to help them make friends, assert theselves and stand up to bullying. By building their confidence, children experience reduced anxiety, enhanced self esteem and self awareness. The groups are a safe place for children to 'test the waters' , to take risks and to say and do things that might not be socially 'typical'. We moderate their communication and social behaviour by helping them to accept each others' strengths and weaknesses and to value their differences.
While we always aim to have fun, the groups mirror real life where things don't always turn out how they would expect. We help children deal with negative emotions and transition them from disappointment to acceptance through the support of the group clinicians and fellow group members. Children learn strategies to help them in their day-to-day lives, enabling them to face the world with greater confidence
Activities covered in the groups include:
Team building and friendship exercises
Solving problems through role play
Interpretation of facial expressions & other social cues
Listening, auditory processing & comprehension
Vocabulary & conversation skills
Repecting rules & differences in play
Reacting appropriately & modifying behaviour
Groups for children age 7-15 take place on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings; and on Friday afternoons.
