Social Skills Building



Social Skills training allows children to learn and practice these skills in a safe environment with others. For some children, social interactions are problematic. The combination of impulsivity, immaturity and difficulty reading social cues can lead to poor peer relationships. Learning to get along with others is a challenge, whether at school, in sports, with friends or at home. This Social Skills training group is designed for children to be engaged in social learning opportunities. The material taught in the Social Skill Building Group at Genesis Counseling & Consulting, Inc., is adapted to promote effective socialization and communication skills.
