Family Centre Therapeutic Groups and Social Skills Groups are run after-school and are designed to increase children’s and teens’ 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 and adolescents 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.
Family Centre presents a social skills group for teens of any gender, ages 14-16. This group will be focused on self-expression, identifying emotions, and self-esteem. These concepts will be explored through a variety of creative means. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, Family Centre social skills groups are offered FREE to participants.
Sign up now by emailing Ge’Von Greaves (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Raynisha Simmons (email@example.com) or call 232-1116. Creativity Group Sessions will take place at Family Centre on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30PM, from November 15 to December 13, 2022.
Spaces are limited. Signup deadline is November 15, 2022. Feel free to share this flyer with a family you know that will benefit.
