We are offering two groups designed for young adults, (18 – 25), who are either in college, about to enter a college program, or taking a year off from college. This program is designed to teach and enhance skills that promote the emotional resilience and effective behavioral strategies necessary for success during this transitioning time, and it is being offered during Winter Break when young adults have greater flexibility in their schedules. The scheduling for the groups is arranged so that participants can attend one or both groups.
This group will cover organization, planning, time management, and self-monitoring skills. Participants will be encouraged to discuss assignments and tasks that they have struggled with during previous college semesters, such as managing emails and organizing materials, studying for final exams, completing long-term projects, and balancing their social lives with academics. Other tasks of independent living will also be addressed. Participants are strongly advised to complete individual in-person or video sessions following completion of group sessions to support application of skills into their life. These sessions are offered as a package at a discounted rate.
