Meet and greet: Social skills for teens holiday program

Available during some school holidays, Meet and Greet: Social Skills for Teens is for teenagers in Years 7 – 10 who have difficulty knowing how to make friends and how to keep friends.

We work through strategies for:

  • Figuring out what others are thinking and feeling
  • Starting and continuing conversations
  • Managing and communicating feelings e.g. anxiety, anger
  • Solving social problems e.g. disagreeing, negotiating
  • Adjusting to different social situations
  • Understanding unwritten social rules
  • Sharing interests with other teens
  • Being confident

Cognitive strategies are taught and practised in the context of fun activities e.g. ten pin bowling, music, cooking and eating together.

Program delivery varies between clinics so check with your local clinic about their programs.
