RESILIENCE BUILDER PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN: Enhancing Social Competence and Self-Regulation

Join this research-based group therapy system which uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches to building kids’  social skills that will help them make & keep friends. Unlike many other programs based on theory, this program has been implemented since 1992 and has shown clear evidence that the skills are generalized outside the therapy office in home and school settings. Children who attend this program show a decrease in anxiety, depression, and withdrawal.

Resiliency refers to a set of skills that help kids adjust and cope effectively with challenges.  Research tells us that kids who are resilient tend to be happier, better liked by peers, and adaptable to change.

Goals for your child:

  • Take initiative
  • Regulate attention
  • Manage emotions
  • Control behavior
  • Build connections with peers
  • Identify and nurture personal interests and talents

Program assessment and evaluations occur throughout to track effectiveness, monitor progress, and provide feedback to parents.

When: Mondays 3:45-4:45pm (Boys), 5-6pm (Girls)

Structure: 2 12-week units, fall & spring

Participants: 4-6 children per group

Registration is limited to families who have been treated by the LindenBP team to optimize group cohesion & success.  If you are interested, please call LindenBP to learn more, 440/250-9880.
