This Social Skills Group is very unique, it follows the Dungeons & Dragons methodology AND it’s led by one of our skilled Counselors, Bhavika Parmar, LPC Intern, supervised by Beth Coles, LPC-S #61349 RPT-S. She cultivates a warm, engaging and dynamic environment while assessing your child and specifically helping him/her navigate the activities so he can work on his social skills.

 

Kids can learn to tolerate peer feedback!

 

 

How does the group work? 

Kids will create their own characters (feels powerful), and play these characters in a fantasy world. Your child (as their character) will work together with others to solve problems, defeat monsters and work a little magic!!

There will be maps and figurines. Your child will keep track of his own character’s thoughts, feelings and motivations and use their imagination and problem solving skills to interface with the world (empowering!)

This is the ultimate group for kids who enjoy fantasy, being in control, winning AND need help in problem solving and interacting with friends!
