Social Skills are imperative during the adolescent years due to increased contact with peers and as training for adulthood. Some adolescents need extra assistance and practice of these important life skills. Social Skills for adolescent boys 11 to 14 will focus on the following areas; dealing with feelings, communication, teamwork, decision-making, goal-setting, self-control, making and keeping friends, and self-esteem. During this weeklong group, adolescents will learn about, discuss, and practice these skills while interacting with their peers. Adolescents will also provide their peers with therapeutic feedback on their participation while earning rewards for prosocial behavior.
