Over the past ten weeks, youth and their parents/caregivers from Peel and Halton region participated in the Children’s Friendship Training Social Skills Group.
The youth learned ecologically valid social skills that will help them make and keep friends. Topics included conversational skills, making/receiving phone calls, how to join a group, being a good sport, and handling disagreements. Parents/caregivers on the other hand, were taught how to become social coaches for their youth.
During Week 10, participants, parents/caregivers, and facilitators, celebrated the success of the group, and held a graduation party.
