Interaction based social skills group for children, teens, young adults

Interaction Based Social Skills Groups

Dr. Mendel:
I believe that human beings learn social skills best by interacting socially – by playing, not by reading, writing, or listening to lectures. In my groups, we talk together about issues in the lives of the group members and play games – card games, board games, computer games, whatever appeals to the members of the group. I am there to facilitate, to guide, and comment. Through playing with their peers, in a safe and supportive environment, free of the teasing and rejection they have experienced far too often in their lives, with the guidance of a helpful, fun-loving adult, their social skills improve by leaps and bounds. For many of the members of the group, this is the first time in their lives they have had positive social experiences.
