Summer Social Skills Information
Stokan Jaggers & Associates’ Social Groups are peer groups designed to strengthen the social interaction and communication skills of children, teens and adults who are experiencing social difficulties. Participants will learn through positive experiences, as we provide a safe environment to encourage active participation, practice social skills, and promote success and independence.
Social skills groups allow individuals to learn better conversational skills, learn the nuances of verbal and nonverbal communication, develop appropriate assertiveness and cooperative play skills, differentiate between being a leader versus a follower, learn appropriate conventions for a variety of social situations, as well as learn how to develop and build friendships. Two advantages of Group Therapy are real time peer feedback, and the potential development of healthy peer relations both in and out of Group. Parents are encouraged to extend social development by facilitating outside activities.
