Western Connecticut Behavioral Health is pleased to announce a new Social Skills Training Group for children in 1st through 3rd grade. The focus of this 10-session group is to help children develop social awareness, social problem solving skills, and self understanding, with a goal of improved functioning in home, school and community settings.
Using Michelle Garcia Winner and Linda K. Murphy's Social Thinking Curriculum, children will participate in small groups (likely 4-6 individuals) to work through a variety of social-emotional challenges and situations. These research-based materials incorporate developmentally-appropriate language and concepts to help children learn to navigate their social worlds with greater success.
Other Social Skills Groups
We have started a group for high school boys who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or have social skills deficits. This group is led by a male to help facilitate easier conversations about identity and relationships and struggles commonly faced by individuals with social deficits.
