Group Emotion & Social Thinking Therapy - for children within the same 2-3 year developmental period. These groups target children who struggle with being successful socially and who may experience anxiety or have an inability to be in control of their emotions. It helps children access solutions and develop coping skills while practicing connecting with other children.
Maximum 10 participants per group. Usually once or twice a week for 1.5 hours with length depending on the program.
