PEERS® for Young Adults (Ages 18-28) is a 16-week evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated young adults, who are interested in learning ways to help make and keep friends. During each group session, young adults are taught important social skills and are given the opportunity to practice these skills in session.
Parents/Caregivers are taught how to assist their young adults in making and keeping friends by providing feedback through social coaching during weekly socialization homework assignments.
Enrollment is limited. Classes are on Monday evenings from 6:00 pm-7:30 pm. Regular attendance is imperative. Parent/Caregiver participation is required.
