Family Social Skills

This eight-week series is for children and their parents on understanding and practicing social skills and skill-coaching strategies.

The course teaches social skills necessary for positive relationships across home and school and well as in unstructured settings with peers.

Our sessions incorporate evidence-based cognitive-behavioral intervention strategies, including role-playing designed to be fun and educational for both children and parents. Age-appropriate groups are offered for families with children ages 5-7 and 8-11.

The Family Social Skills group places an emphasis on:

  • Assertion, self-advocacy and effective communication
  • Accepting and frustration tolerance
  • Following rules and directions
  • Good sportsmanship
  • Dealing with teasing and ignoring provocation
  • Conflict resolution and active problem solving


The group meets once a week for eight weeks. Sessions are 90 minutes each.


Register early. There is a maximum of eight families per group. There is a fee for this program.
