Social Skills & Peer Difficulties
Humans of all ages tend to seek belonging and acceptance from friends or peers. However, sometimes our children may find that they are having difficulty connecting with others, or feel excluded from social events. If it seems like your child may be exhibiting an ongoing pattern of peer or social difficulties, treatment geared towards improving social skills and their application to peer relationships may be helpful.
Common difficulties may include:
- Difficulty making or keeping friends
- Increase in isolation or loneliness
- Change in interest in talking about their day
At Union Square Practice, our child and adolescent clinicians have extensive experience working with children and adolescents struggling with social skills or peer-related difficulties. Our clinicians take a holistic and collaborative approach to come up with a tailored treatment plan that works for your child to build on their strengths and to improve their confidence.
