  • Abrams & Associates, LLC
    Kensington, MD

    Teen Girls Groups: ages 12-13, 14-15, 16-17. We run teen girls groups that serve to empower and strengthen teens as they address academic stress, mood instability, social belonging, peer pressure, body-image and anxieties. Didactic, processing and experiential techniques are integrated into sessions while girls learn coping and relational skills effective for family and friendship. Techniques including guided insight, peer sharing and feedback, mindful meditation and social self-appraisal exercises help girls with social-emotional maturation, self-acceptance, communication and interpersonal competence.

    Mindfulness for Middle Schoolers/High Schoolers: This is a time-limited and skills based group that draws heavily from the mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) approach. Mindfulness is the act of intentionally attending to one’s present moment-to-moment experiences in a open and nonjudgmental way. Through mindfulness strategies, one is able to calm the mind, and be less reactive and more purposeful in their responses. Mindfulness techniques have been heavily studied in the literature and have been found to have many benefits including reduced anxiety and stress, increased sense of control and self-efficacy, a reduction in anger/hostility and better reported sleep. The goal of this group is to teach adolescents how to better manage stress and anxiety and engage in more focused and intentional behavior through the use of empirically supported mindfulness techniques. Examples of the types of exercises include Body Scan, Mindful Stopping and Mindful Homework/Test Taking.

    We are a family-friendly group practice offering assessment and psychotherapy for children, teens and adults. For more information or to set up a group intake appointment, please contact our intake coordinator.

  • Alvord Baker & Associates, LLC – Resilience Builder Program®
    Rockville, MD and Chevy Chase, MD

    Alvord, Baker & Associates, LLC has been providing social competence groups for children and adolescents since 1992. The groups focus on enhancing resilience, which we view as the ability to adapt well to life and its challenges. Children’s social competence can be impacted greatly by one or several of the following factors: ability to regulate their behavior and emotions; anxiety; ADHD; learning disabilities; low self-esteem; organizational challenges; and/or transition difficulties. Our groups help children identify what they do well, and to build on their strengths. We use the Resilience Builder Program® which utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral framework (how one thinks impacts how one feels and subsequently, how one behaves with others) and empirically supported strategies.  We also offer specialized groups for children diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorders (PDD), Aspergers and High Functioning Autism.   All groups are led by experienced licensed psychologists and clinical social workers. Didactic, process, and experiential activities, discussions and relaxation/self-control techniques are utilized. Boys, girls, and co-ed groups from pre-school through elementary grades.

  • The Center for Anxiety and Behavioral Change
    Rockville, MD & McLean, VA

    CABC offers a variety of evidence-based groups for children and teens experiencing anxiety and related disorders. These groups are generally separated into elementary, middle, and high school sections. For each age group, we offer multiple group options to best fit your child’s needs. One of the groups that we offer is a 15-week Social Effectiveness Therapy group for children and teens (SET-C) that is designed to teach specific social skills that have been found to be challenging for those with social anxiety disorder, such as initiating and maintaining conversations. We also offer groups for students struggling with anxiety-based school refusal. These groups are ongoing and focused on providing skills and support to children and teens as they re-enter and then sustain attendance in school. We also offer the group Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T) which is a group that teaches mindfulness-based techniques, skills, and tools that will help teens to function more adaptively and improve their quality of life. In addition, we offer specialized groups for elementary and middle school students with anxiety and related disorders. For middle school students we offer a 12-week evidence-based group that teaches non-avoidant coping strategies, and in which group members practice “going on offense” against their fears (known as exposure therapy). “Exposures” are designed collaboratively with the children to challenge their fears and to help them remain in anxiety-provoking situations until the anxiety naturally reduces. By learning to “outlast” their anxiety, the group members learn how avoidance and fear are “teammates.” For elementary-aged children, we offer an evidence-based group that focuses on building specific strategies to cope with the anxiety that include identifying emotions, learning how to communicate about their feelings, develop tools for facing stressful situations, and build skills to generalize these techniques to their home and school experiences.

  • Growing Minds, Center for Child and Family Therapy
    Rockville, MD

    Growing Minds offers expertise in social-emotional development for preschool through middle school ages. Our playful, experiential and evidence-based approach will engage your child and deepen your insight into your child’s behaviors and inner-world. Our integrative methods focus on the whole-child through individual, family, and group therapy modalities, along with collaboration with schools, specialists, and community resources.

    Our social skills therapy groups are conducted by highly experienced therapists modeling a child-centered, strengths-based approach which creates a trusting relationship allowing for practice and coaching in desirable behaviors and correction of social mistakes or missed cues. In small groups, the children learn to interact with friendly behaviors while also working on regulating their own impulses and emotions. While individual differences are accepted and valued, emphasis is on enhancing strength for positive social relationships. Children served include those with ADHD, anxiety, learning, behavior, social-emotional and self-esteem difficulties. Priorities for skill development include two-way conversation, taking turns, reading social cues, handling teasing, giving compliments, showing empathy, solving problems, managing emotions, and positive self-talk.

    Groups are weekly 60-minute sessions for 10-12 weeks. Groupings include mixed diagnosis with average or higher intelligence and typical social potential. Because parents have a key role in supporting and reinforcing their child’s social skill development, parent group meetings are held to discuss ways to enhance progress and apply skills to home and school situations.
