Social skills needed in everyday life do not always “just happen.” Some boys need extra help and practice to develop these skills. Social Skills Group for Boys 7 to 10 will focus on skills such as; teamwork, making and keeping friends, communication, conflict resolution, recognizing and expressing feelings, decision-making, taking responsibility, and self-esteem. During this weeklong group, boys will learn about, discuss, and practice these skills while interacting with their peers. Boys will also provide their peers with therapeutic feedback on their participation while earning rewards for prosocial behavior.
Facilitated by Katie Overcash, LCSW and Lynne Beck, LPC who have over 20 combined years experience in the mental health field in various setting such as school, residential, and outpatient. Both licensed therapists have years experience running these groups and currently own outpatient mental health businesses, Overcash Therapy Services, PLLC and New Journey Counseling respectively.
Participation in the group includes 15 hours of direct contact with both licensed therapists and a parental consultation at the conclusion of the week with either Katie or Lynne.
