What is a Social Skills Group?
A social skills group is a structured therapeutic program designed to help individuals improve their social interactions and develop effective communication skills. These groups bring together individuals who may struggle with social interactions or face challenges in understanding and responding to social cues.
In a social skills group, participants engage in a variety of activities, discussions, and role-playing exercises that target specific social skills and behaviors. The group provides a safe and inclusive environment for individuals to practice and refine their social abilities, such as making eye contact, initiating and maintaining conversations, active listening, understanding emotions, empathy, problem-solving, and conflict resolution.
Trained professionals utilize evidence-based techniques to guide the participants through various social scenarios, offer constructive feedback, and teach strategies for improving social skills.
Social skills groups can be beneficial for people who experience challenges related to social interactions, such as those with autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), social anxiety, or difficulties in making friends. By participating in a social skills group, individuals can develop the necessary skills, confidence, and self-awareness to navigate social situations successfully, improve relationships, and enhance overall social and emotional well-being.
Groups are led by Dr. Bianca Marro Boyle, and also include a co-facilitator. Participants are screened and grouped according to age and developmental level. Group size is typically 4-8 participants. Groups run for 50 minutes and are held in our office.
