Since 2010, we have been running regular social skills workshops for children and teens. They learn this most important life skill through games, role play, and videos. Better social skills help children cultivate positive interactions, communicate appropriately, recognize and express their feelings.

What is your social skills workshop? Some children and adolescents have difficulty getting along with peers because some of their social skills have not been developed. These include identifying feelings in themselves and in others, learning social cues, handling frustration, taking turns, and learning proper behaviors in a group. In 2010, we developed a program with 10 structured group sessions aimed to help children and adolescents:

– Increase self-awareness by understanding their thoughts and feelings
– Demonstrate how to act appropriately given specific situations
– Read social cues by putting oneself in another person’s position
– Make smart guesses about other people’s thoughts and feelings
– Communicate by initiating and responding to verbal communication

I think my child needs to develop his/her social skills. How can he/she join your workshop? We conduct the workshop year-round, after we have gathered the minimum number of children or adolescents to attend this workshop. If you think your child will benefit from this, you may seek consultation with one of our psychologists. He/she will describe the workshop to you and how it can help your child.
