PEERS (Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills) is a 14-week evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated teens in middle and high school who are interested in learning ways to make and keep friendships. During each group session, teens are taught important social skills through didactic instruction, live demonstration by trained coaches, and extensive practice of these skills through real play activities while receiving live individualized coaching from clinical staff.

Parents attend weekly parent sessions where they are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments.

Topics of instruction include:

  • How to use appropriate conversation skills

  • How to appropriately use humor

  • How to handle rejection, teasing, and bullying

  • How to handle arguments and disagreements

  • How to choose appropriate friends

  • And much more

Sessions are targeted to begin Tuesday, February 5.
