Many children struggle with making and keeping friends. It is hard to watch your child struggle with friendships and they may be getting their feelings hurt more often when they do not get invited to birthday parties or other social events.
Social skills training is very effective at helping children who struggle with friendships. In combination with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for the anxiety component, your child will find socializing with others to be easier and more natural. Through learning conflict- management strategies specific to children, their relationships will improve and it will open the door to more opportunities to make new friends. Therapy is usually short-term and your child will experience success rather quickly.
