Summer Skills Group for Girls

If your child struggles with negative thinking patterns or handling difficult scenarios, this girl's summer skills group can help. In this 5-week psychoeducation-based group, group members will learn how to better handle big emotions and daily challenges. Members will learn to notice and change negative thinking patterns, identify the situations that bring them difficulties, and find the coping tools that work best for them. These skills and tools are the foundation needed to build resiliency, the ability to self-soothe, and an increased sense of self.

Each week parents will receive a handout with details on that week’s topic to continue the discussion and practice at home.

Throughout the group scripture, prayer, and discussion of God’s view of us and desires for us will be included.

This group is not for those who:

Have history of trauma

Have behavioral struggles

Or will miss sessions.
