Our groups are experiential learning programs.  That means that participants learn skills and concepts to help them to work in groups, then work together as a group to experience, explore and practice those strategies learnt.  This approach helps to consolidate their learning into memory, and also, helps to form new neural pathways to help participants take the same skill more confidently into other areas of their lives. 

Each week, Teen Group participants will be plunged into different group dynamics, and challenged to work through a series of clues, challenges and puzzles, with the aim of working as a team to reach the finish first.  Some of the skills to be discussed in this program include: 

- Communication skills

- Demonstrating respectful listening and understanding why it is so powerful

- Decision making strategies in groups

- Knowing when to lead, when to follow, and how much to contribute

- Using people's strengths to work together

- Managing conflict situations and difficult team members

- Self-talk to help yourself to manage your time in groups

Cost: $520 for the 5 week program and individual feedback session.  New participants are also required to attend an initial play based assessment with Connie ($160) and parent background information and planning session ($160).  Both sessions attract a partial Medicare rebate of approximately $83 with a valid mental health care plan. 


A valid Mental Health Care Plan will also attract a partial Medicare rebate for the group sessions, provided that 6 or more individuals attend each session. The Medicare group rebate is approximately $20 per session.   The final Individual Feedback Session also attracts a Medicare rebate of approximately $83.00.

Session summaries highlighting key concepts and strategies are emailed to parents/caregivers after each group session. 

Written reports at the conclusion of the program are charged at $140 each plus GST if requested.
