PEERS for Teenagers

About these groups:

Essential skills taught:

  • Conversation skills
  • Finding common interests
  • Making phone calls
  • Using electronic communication
  • Organising successful get-togethers with friends
  • Finding sources of friends
  • Choosing appropriate friends
  • How to use humour
  • How to be a good sport
  • Handling bullying and rejection
  • Handling rumours, gossip, and disagreements
  • Changing a reputation

During group sessions, participants are taught the above skills and are given the opportunity to practice them in session during interactive activities (e.g. role plays, playing sports, boardgames). Parents are taught how to assist their teenager to make and keep friends by coaching them through weekly socialisation tasks.

Our PEERS group for Terms 1-2 2023 will be held on Fridays from 4-5:30pm at our Charlestown clinic commencing on 3rd February. We will schedule introductory meetings with each teenager and their parent(s) prior to the group starting, then the group runs for 14 weeks (with 3 weeks break over the Easter school holidays).
