Summer Group Schedule
All groups start the week of June 6th
Social Skills Group (ages 7-11 Monday 5-6pm and ages 12-18 Wednesday 5-6pm)
We recognize that some children struggle with social interactions more than their peers. Group therapy offers the perfect opportunity to learn and practice the social skills necessary for healthy, productive relationships. Combining lessons and activities from evidence-based social skills programs, this group empowers members to feel confident and comfortable in facing common social situations and challenges. This is a 12-week group. Cost is $20 per session or $200 upfront.
Parenting Support Group (Monday 6-7pm)
Parenting is one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences a person can have. This group will provide parent consultation and educate parents on how to cope with a child's difficult behaviors. Parents will be able to discuss their unique challenges and receive support and feedback from peers and a NBCG therapist. This group will run for 8-weeks with the option of an additional 4 weeks focusing on parenting a child with Autism. Cost is $20 per session or $135 upfront for 8 weeks and $200 upfront for 12 weeks.
Teen Girls Skills Group (Tuesday 12:30-2pm)
This group focuses on supporting and empowering girls ages 14-18 through some of the unique challenges that teen girls face. Session topics include self-esteem, dating relationships, body image, and identity. Each session centers on an activity while providing an open space to discuss thoughts and feelings. This group runs for 10-weeks. Cost is $20 per session or $150 upfront. This Skills Group can be combined with Teen Girl Support Group for a total upfront cost of $250.
Teen Girls Support Group (Thursday 1-2pm)
Being an adolescent girl comes with unique challenges, and many girls feel alone in their experiences. This group will build on the curriculum covered in our Skills Group and allow a space for girls aged 14-18 to discuss their challenges and receive peer support. This is a 10-week group. Cost is $20 per session or $150 upfront. Can be combined with Teen Girl Skills Group for a total upfront price of $250.
LGBTQ Support Group** (Tuesday 5-6pm)
For LGBTQ teens and young adults the coming (and living) out process can be both difficult and liberating (especially in our community that brings with it certain challenges). Our participants -- parents, family members, friends and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community – are committed to providing support and unconditional love to help in the journey. This group is close to our hearts. One of Dr. Cardinal's 5 children is gay and she is grateful to have the opportunity to serve a “cause” so important to her. This is an on-going group and is provided at no cost.
**Dr. Cardinal will take calls evenings and weekends from any family or individual in crises related to LGBTQ issues. If she doesn't answer, please text and she will get a hold of you asap. Her cell is 801 455 4019
