The UCLA Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relationship Skills (PEERS) is a manualized, social skills training intervention for adolescents and young adults. It has a strong evidence-base for use with teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorders, but is also appropriate for teens and young adults with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and other socioemotional problems.
We have 2 adolescent groups that meet weekly:
The UCLA PEERS Program staff train mental health professionals and educators who are interested in learning and/or implementing the PEERS intervention and research in their clinical practice. The UCLA PEERS Program is a Regional Center Vendor.
Dates for upcoming PEERS groups and training seminars can be found on the group's Calendar.
