Group Therapy for kids and Teens

Social Skills Group for kids 

Miri Arie & Lilach Geppert-Shapira 


Our mission is to help children develop successful social relationships with peers. For some, it may mean developing a meaningful relationship with one or two peers, for others, it may mean being part of a larger group. Regardless of the age, gender or interest – the key to success on this journey is in helping children and youth become flexible thinkers, strong problem solvers and understand how their behaviors affect the thoughts and feelings of others.  On this endeavor, we help each child better understand his own style of interaction and communication which will allow them to meet their own social goals and experience success.


Our Social Skills Group is a weekly group meeting designed to help children develop age-appropriate social and communication skills as well as learn to regulate their feelings.

Group Structure:

  1. Conversation skills: 15-20 min
