This Social Skills Group for children ages 8-10 is offered through Jewish Family Services Ottawa. It is a small, specialized group program designed to help your child grow in a number of key areas:
* Breaking down barriers in making friends and socializing
* Conflict resolution strategies
* Anxiety and stress-reduction techniques
* Engaged listening and problem-solving skills
* Recognizing and managing emotions
* Enhancing self-esteem, assertiveness and confidence
* Self-care and coping
In addition to these important skills, it provides you with a unique opportunity to connect with your child and learn more about their thoughts and feelings.
The program is based on the principles of Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness and is facilitated by a child and family counsellor with expertise in social-emotional development. It is designed to assist children with a variety of challenges including difficulty with peers, anxiety, emotional regulation and impulsiveness.
