Teen Participants Gain Support Through New Social Skills Program at SARRC

Learn more about this new SARRC program aimed at helping teens to make and keep friends.

SARRC is welcoming teens grades 7 through 12 to the PEERS program, an evidence-based, parent-assisted social skills program aimed at helping teens to make and keep friends. PEERS is a 14-week program that teaches skills ranging from how to enter and exit conversations to how to handle teasing, bullying and rejection.

While teens are in their sessions, parents have a separate class where they learn how to be their teen's social coach.
