Therapeutic Groups at Family Centre

Family Centre Therapeutic Groups and Social Skills Groups are run after-school and are designed to increase children’s social and communication skills so that they can better self-regulate and develop healthy relationships. Groups are created around various themes appropriate for different developmental stages. Children learn through direct discussion, as well as role-playing and therapeutic games and activities with peers designed to introduce and strengthen specific social-emotional skills.

Upcoming Groups


Family Centre presents a therapeutic group for adolescent and teen girls ages 12-15. This group will focus on anxiety and self-esteem, with the goal of helping the girls develop and increase skills in self-expression, coping skills and assertiveness.  Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Family Centre therapeutic groups are offered at no cost to participants.

Sign up now by emailing or or call 232-1116. Girls Group Sessions will take place at Family Centre on Thursdays from 4:00-5:15PM from May 12th – June 23rd, 2022.
Spaces are limited.  Feel free to share this flyer with a family you know that will benefit.
