Child Groups:

Group counseling with children is generally conducted in a slightly different way than individual non-directive play therapy techniques. Child group counseling is generally a mixture of structured and non-structured elements. This means that children are often asked to complete some type of activity which maybe directly related to the issue or have a non-direct path to develop the desired skills. Aspects of the group are different due to the developmental needs of each group. So while the groups are developed based upon grade this is not necessarily a ridged placement. Group determination is based on need not chronological age. It is strongly encouraged that all group participants work with individual therapists as well to support the skills and strengthen the aspects of group. Additionally, some skills are better develop one on one and practiced in the safety of the group environment.
