Group Therapy

Emotions can be overwhelming and can seemingly compel us toward reactions in stressful situations, even when we would like to handle those situations differently. Social situations are no exception and group therapy is a great option that helps children gain mastery over their emotions as they happen in social situations. Kids learn to try new behaviors and to manage their reactions in the moment, leading to the potential for big changes.
