Improve your Social Skills

The Macquarie University Psychology Clinic has been running a social skills group for a number of years. Recently the program has been re-modeled based on the well-researched Australian social skills program 'STOP THINK DO' (Peterson, 2002). The program includes sessions for both children and parents.

Sessions for children cover topics such as:

  • Getting to know people
  • Understanding and communicating feelings
  • Solving social problems
  • Assertive, co-operative and friendly behaviours
  • Dealing with teasing and bullying

Sessions for parents cover topics such as:

  • Goal setting
  • Understanding and accurately observing child behaviour
  • Reinforcing the positives
  • Active listening
  • Helping children with social problem solving
  • Behaviour management
  • Helping children deal with bullies

Duration

The sessions run after school for 10 weeks. Each session is 1.5 hours. Generally 3 therapists will facilitate the child program, while 1 or 2 therapists administer the parenting program. It should be the same parent attending each week for the parenting sessions.

Cost

The program costs $300 (non-refundable $50 payable at the initial assessment, the remaining $250 payable before the first night of the group).
