You Are Acceptional!
These groups are for ages 12-17. They are designed to address specific skills and social understanding needed to become happy, healthy, and productive adults. Since boys and girls are often socialized differently, these groups are designed for teenagers to build skills with their peers. Groups are taught both separately and together. We also connect with other groups and community environments to continue practicing skills. Examples of possible topics include self advocacy, hygiene including genital health, menstrual hygiene, dealing with bullies, self harm and risky behaviors, understanding sexual behavior and consent, social emotional learning, executive functioning skills in and out of the classroom, and cultivating healthy relationships and boundaries.
