  • Abrams & Associates, LLC
    Kensington, MD

    Teen Girls Groups: Grades 9-12. 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.

    In addition, we offer Mindfulness for 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 an 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.

    Young Adults;  Weekly group meetings for young adults, ages 18-22. Emphasis of group is on self-development, individuation, social relationship skills, money management, assertiveness and emotional resourcefulness. This is a process oriented talk therapy group. In this group we are helping young adults to gain independent life skills in order to become more self-sufficient and more confident as they learn to take risks and grow into adulthood.

    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.

    CBT for Anxiety Middle School Group  (grades 6-8)
    The CBT for Anxiety Group is a 12-session, co-ed skills group for middle schoolers (grades 6-8) with anxiety of any kind (e.g., generalized worry (“What if?” thinking), social or health anxiety, panic attacks, phobias). The focus of the group is on cognitive-behavioral strategies to reduce worry and avoidance. This primary strategy taught is exposure, which is gradually facing feared situations or outcomes. This is the gold-standard method of treating anxiety. Additional strategies, such as challenging anxious thought patterns and relaxation exercises will also be included. We understand that some children may be hesitant to engage in exposure tasks and confront their worries so we will begin group with a focus on motivational interviewing principles and help the group enhance their self-efficacy to prepare for the tasks ahead in accordance with their personal values. If you are interested in obtaining more information about the group, please call our intake coordinator at 301-593-5554 x23 or send an email: intake@alvordbaker.com.

  • 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.

  • Center for Family Well-Being, PLLC
    Washington, DC

    The Center for Family Well-Being is a group of holistic therapists in NW DC who skillfully integrate Western psychotherapy with the deep wisdom of Eastern mindful-awareness practice, as well as other mind-body healing methods — both traditional and modern — for the optimal well-being of kids, teens, adults, couples, and families.

    Our Girls In Tune™ program offers educational, experiential, playful, and developmentally appropriate mindful-awareness groups to help girls actively practice relational and self-regulation skills; reduce stress; increase joy and well-being; and strengthen connections to themselves and others. Groups are designed to help participants grow confidence while also learning positive coping and relational skills.

    Our Boys In Tune™ mindfulness, play, activity, and skill-building groups emphasize flexibility, empathy, positive self-esteem, and growing self and social awareness. Boys will learn to gain confidence, grow their friendship skills, resolve conflict, and recognize and express emotions.

    Girls In Tune™ eand Boys In Tune™ groups are appropriate for boys and girls who need assistance with: coping and regulation skills; learning to “read” themselves and others (i.e., managing friendships); reducing anxiety, managing feelings; and developing self-appreciation, compassion, and confidence.

    Compassion in Action
    Cultivating self-compassion, courage, and connection for middle schoolers
    This in-person expressive, experiential, and “talk” relationship skill-building group helps participants increase self-compassion, balance moods, and reduce worries. Participants are actively coached in breaking the cycle of the negative inner critic while growing their courage and building healthy habits of self-care. We dive deeply into the topics that feel most urgent for middle schoolers: the shifting terrain of friendships, our complex feelings about social media usage, and how to build a robust and confident self and embrace our differences—during a developmental period brimming with pressure to assimilate. Facilitated by Lida Sunderland & Aryn Davis; Wednesdays @ 5-6:15PM, beginning mid-September

    Back-to-School Refresher for Body and Mind
    Coping, caring, and connecting for high schoolers
    This 5-week “tune-in and tune-up” group is designed for teens navigating the inevitable anxiety that accompanies the back-to-school transition. Drawing on gentle movement, yoga, and breath work — as well as other mindfulness-based tools, expressive art, CBT, and polyvagal techniques — we work with both body and mind to support and relax the anxious mind, feeling more empowered to enter this new school year. Participants learn to calm their nervous system in the face of life changes and build a holistic toolbox for self-compassion, coping, and growth — while also practicing inward attunement; connections with others to enhance their relational lives; and creative and healthy habits of self-care. Facilitated by Amelia Aburn; Five Tuesdays: August 30th thru September 27th @ 5:30-6:30PM

  • 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.
