Develop Your Social Skills Toolkit Workshop
Module 1: Basic Communication/Social Skills for Teens 14-18 yrs
Social Skills Toolkit is aimed at assisting teens who are interested in understanding the social and work world by creating a toolkit that will assist individuals to make and keep friends, socialise and feel confident, and even develop romantic relationships. Participants are given the opportunity to practice these skills during and between weekly sessions. Consistent weekly participation is essential. Module 1 is the core unit and must be completed before commencing any of the advance modules and will run at Link Health's Batesford Hub (not far from Power Neighbourhood House).
It is recommended that participants attend each session with a social coach (i.e. parent, family member, adult siblings, life coach, job coach, peer mentor, etc.) who will be in a separate room. These social coaches are taught how to support participants in using the social skills tools developed in the workshops and during weekly homework assignments. Modules 2-4 will run immediately after module 1 and will be open for booking on separate booking pages. For full program information refer to the Teens Social Skills Toolkit Workshops brochure (pdf)
