A Children’s Group Therapy Program Designed to Enhance Self-Image and Social Skills
Some children have tried so hard and for so long to make friends that they just give up. They figure "why put yourself out there when it just leads to frustration and rejection?"
At Academy MetroWest kids are welcomed into our fun, supportive community. We teach them the skills they need to make friends and show them why it's worth the effort!
Academy MetroWest runs small groups that meet weekly. Run by professional counselors, groups center on cooperative, non-competitive physical activity as a means of helping children, aged 6-16 improve the way they view themselves and interact with others.
At Academy MetroWest, we strive to help children:
- Develop And enhance social skills
- Improve self-image And body image
- Build physical self-confidence
- Increase frustration tolerance
- Relax And reduce stress
- Channel And focus energy constructively
"My son learned most everything he knows about cooperative interactions with peers from you. It has served him well in school where he has been able to make friends largely because of the skills he learned at Academy.”
