AN EVIDENCE-BASED SOCIAL SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAM | CONCURRENT PARENT AND CHILD SESSIONS

Children’s Friendship Training is a social skills program for children in Grades 2 – 6, who have a hard time developing and maintaining friendships.  This program sets itself apart from other social programs by including and empowering parents through the teaching process.  During 1-hour sessions, it covers topics that will help children make and keep friends by teaching concrete skills with specific steps.

Skills taught include:

  • Conversational skills like “slipping in”
  • Being a good sport
  • Being a play date host
  • Making a best friend
  • Taking “no” for an answer
  • Resisting teasing
  • During concurrent sessions, parents are taught to be effective social coaches for their children, so these skills can be encouraged well beyond the 11-week program.
