Social Skills Groups

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

Beginning in the winter/spring 2018, we will be starting a group for high school boys who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or have social skills deficits. This group will be led by two males to help facilitate easier conversations about identity and relationships and struggles commonly faced by individuals with social deficits.
