Therapy Can Help Develop Social Emotional Learning
Children can practice Social-Emotional Learning skills in many different ways and settings. In fact, the more practice the better when it comes to these important areas of life. Therapy is a terrific safe space to develop those skills.
I utilize The Best of Friends Program, which is a structured method for teaching SEL tools to children. It’s designed for children ages 7-11 but can be effective with individuals of other ages as well, particularly when bearing in mind that chronological age and developmental age are not always the same.
The Best of Friends Program is a set of materials that engage the child’s learning process. This helps develop interpersonal and intrapersonal skills.
SEL consists of ten sessions, an hour-long each, with engaging, structured activities that teach children SEL. We use interactive stories, a workbook, and other established techniques to develop and practice these skills. I’ll also consult with parents before and after the program. After all, SEL skills benefit everyone in the family.
As your child improves in SEL, you’ll likely see improvements in their behavior, academic performance, and relationships both within the family and outside of it.
