Strategies for Improving Social Skills in Teens & Young Adults
Do you want to help your teen or young adult improve their social skills, increase their social confidence and learn to make & keep friends?
Join me for this FREE webinar to learn more about how the PEERS Social Skills for Teens & Young Adults Program can help your teen/young adult do just that!
Our kids often have difficulties navigating the social world. Appropriate social skills help us to connect with others and maintain relationships.
Struggling with social skills can put young people at greater risk of peer rejection, loneliness, depression, anxiety & isolation as well as having negative impacts on study, dating & finding & maintaining employment
Having just one or two friends has been shown to help create resilience to stressful life events, predict better adjustment in later life, increase self-esteem/confidence & support independence, minimise the occurrence of bullying, decrease the likelihood of depression and anxiety linked to loneliness
We take social skills for granted and expect our kids to learn by osmosis, but our kids often need a little extra explicit instruction, just like some kids need more explicit instruction in learning to read.
We know social skills have rules which can be easily taught, followed and practised to great effect and so the PEERS programme works by explicitly teaching the skills that come naturally to those who are more socially adept.
