Middle School is a Tough Time for Kids and a Critical Transition Point

Boys will learn the skills necessary to adapt to life’s many changes.

The dynamics of middle school become more focused on peers and particular membership to peer groups. Middle school students begin the responsibility of making personal decisions that will impact their lives. Research shows that group counseling during this critical period increases a child’s social and academic competence, and helps them develop coping skills to use for all life’s challenges.

We are offering separate girls and boys groups for ages 11-13 to help in easing the internal and external stressors associated with adolescent personal growth and development.

The core elements and issues covered will include:

  • Self-compassion and self-care
  • Stress
  • Identity
  • Healthy sexuality
  • Self-management
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Family
  • Peer relationships.

Group therapy will help girls learn social skills and build a sense of belonging.

Why Group?

Groups are an amazing way to support pre-teens. This age is a developmental stage where connecting with each other becomes a priority. Group therapy supplies members with important ways of coping and dealing with life stressors. Group therapy is a setting providing support and offering hope; allowing middle school students to share common problems and develop a sense of belonging.
