Social Skills 4 Kids Groups

Social skills are important tools in helping children become independent, respectful, successful, and capable individuals at school and in their daily lives. These tools help children:

  • Become more aware of social cues
  • Effectively handle emotions and social situations
  • Interact more effectively with peers, teachers, and others

Social Skills 4 Kids is a fun, interactive, and effective approach to help kids improve their social skills. Whether a child is having difficulty handling or expressing emotions, making or keeping friends, behaving appropriately in class, or recognizing social cues, this group facilitates the development of skills for social success.

  • Struggles with identity or a constantly changing “sense of self”
  • Difficulty maintaining healthy relationships

The Summit Counseling Center offers a full protocol DBT program including individual counseling and skills groups for adults, adolescents and their families which are facilitated by Intensively Trained DBT Clinicians. Skills groups run year-round and include the following 3 DBT modules: Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
