Does your teen have the social skills that will lead them to success?
More than ever before, there is an increasing need for social skill-building experiences for these young people. I help socially anxious adolescents to identify areas where they can improve their social skills, and then teach them tips and tricks to improve those skills. I can help your teen learn how to gain and keep more friends, as well as become more confident in social situations.
The value of your teen working with me privately, rather than in a group setting, is that I can give them direct feedback specific to their situations, as well as create exercises, role-playing and homework that will help them achieve their personal goals. The teens that have worked with me report greater peace and satisfaction in their social lives.
Topics Covered Include:
- First Impressions
- Reaching Out to Others
- Managing Peer Conflict
- The Art of Conversation
- Becoming More Assertive
- Communicating Your Needs
- Establishing Firm Boundaries
- Helpful Responses to Bullying
I usually work with teens for 6 to 10 consecutive weeks, depending on the desired result. Some teens prefer to meet twice-weekly, to obtain a more rapid outcome. My style of working with a teen is collaborative and fun. Although I respect that the challenges they may be experiencing are serious, I have found that a joyful atmosphere makes the learning feel more uplifting and comfortable.
