STARTS 21st Feb- Thursday and Tuesdays

A 6-week interactive program for teenagers aged between 12-17 which aims to empower young people to make positive choices and develop the skills necessary to stay safe in situations in and out of the school setting. The program uses a variety of modalities including playing social skill board games and role-playing potentially dangerous situations to assist with generalizing to wider social situations. The group is run by a Psychologist with experience in working with people that have difficulties with making safe choices in social situations. The group is a small size, maximum of three people to allow for a suitable learning environment.

This is a 6-week program covering the following topics:

  • Recognising peer pressure and how to respond to it (Alcohol use, Smoking, Shoplifting)

  • Recognizing when people are taking advantage of you and how to respond

  • Taking other people’s property and reflecting on how it feels for the person whose property was taken

  • Cyberbullying and how to respond to it

  • Handling unpleasant feelings when people say unkind words

Group therapy programs like the Social Skills groups rely on participation & engagement from all participants, the more you become involved, the more likely you will benefit.
