Small Groups

Small group counseling is offered to students throughout the school year and is based on student need. Group sessions will typically last eight weeks, and take place for 30 minutes during your child’s school day. Students are invited to join a group based on parent or teacher referral. A few of our small groups include:

  • Banana Splits Family Change Group is for students whose families are going through separation or divorce, or are experiencing changes in their family setting. This group is intended to give added support to the child during a family transition.
  • Brave Hearts Military Family Group gives students opportunities to express both positive and negative aspects of military life in a group setting, while learning about the different demographic regions and cultures of each service branch that the deployed parents serve.
  • Circle of Friends Friendship Group empowers students to maintain positive friendships by teaching key friendship skills, such as meeting new friends, conversation skills, accepting others, conflict resolution, and more! 
  • Personal Space Camp Social Skills Group is for students who would benefit from a small group setting to learn how to interact with others as well as develop positive school behaviors.
  • Worry Busters Anxiety Group is for students experiencing stress and anxiety. Students will learn about the meaning of stress and anxiety, how it affects their lives, as well as how to best cope with the effects of stress and anxiety both at home and at school.

It is our hope that these small groups can provide students additional support socially/emotionally, allowing them to succeed academically. Please reach out to your school counselor for permission slips and/or further information on these groups.
