Surviving ‘2’ Thriving
A therapy group for teens aged 12 – 15 focusing on social skills development.

Navigating high school can be a confusing and challenging time. Teenagers begin to
form their identities and find out where they fit in the world, shifting away from
family and towards peers. That’s why establishing positive relationships is important
for their social development, self-esteem and mental health.

About the Group

The purpose of the group is to help teens develop their social skills and self-esteem so they
have the confidence to build meaningful connections with peers. The learning program focuses on different topics each week around socialisation, such as: reading social cues; having conversations; and understanding social anxiety.

The group is an opportunity for teens to meet friendly people their age who face similar challenges while creating a safe space to learn together.

The group has been developed especially for teens with (or suspected of) autism spectrum
disorder and is a safe space for LGBTIQ+ people.
