"Get Ready for Middle School" Group

For girls entering grades 6-7 this fall

As your pre-teen gets ready to start her new school year, this group is designed to improve her confidence by teaching valuable skills in Communication, Conflict Resolution, Coping with Stress and Self-Reflection.   Our Middle School Skills Group helps teens start their school year with a clear sense of who they are, what they value, what they deserve from their friendships and how to cope with the ups and downs of the school year.

How Can our Middle School Skills Group Help Your Teen?

The Girls’ Group combines the best elements of group therapy with an age-appropriate curriculum that teaches young women critical skills in communication, self-reflection and conflict resolution leading to improved self-esteem!

MORE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION Identify your communication style and personal approach to conflict.  Learn to be assertive and ask for what you need without being aggressive.  Practice fair-fighting rules to resolve conflict in healthy ways.

STRONGER, HEALTHIER FRIENDSHIPS.  Understand what you want and expect from your friendships, and how you contribute to their success or failure.  Use your new communication skills to manage conflict in ways that are healthy and productive.  Learn to lead with your values so that you attract friendships that are a good fit for you.

EFFECTIVE COPING SKILLS.   Learn valuable techniques for slowing down, being present and managing stressful situations.  Discover ways to de-escalate your anxiety or negative thoughts.  Practice daily habits aimed at reducing stress and fostering a more positive outlook.

IMPROVED SELF-ESTEEM.  Identify and eliminate negative self-talk.  Learn the power of affirmation and accepting compliments.  Gain the confidence to acknowledge what is great about you and be proud of your great qualities.

STRONGER CONNECTIONS Learn from other girls that you are not alone in your struggles.  Give advice, ask for feedback and receive support from girls who understand how you're feeling.
