Title

DYNAMIC SOCIAL SKILLS GROUPS for kids, teens and alults, 
COUNSELLING for yo, ASSESSMENTS AND WORKSHOPS

Teen Groups

This terms group will have an opportunity to work together and build an escape room from scratch. Our participants will rally together, brainstorm, compromise, plan, coordinate and draw on one another's strengths to achieve one project outcome. 


These are not easy tasks, so we'll be drawing on some tried and true social and organisational psychology concepts to help us along the way.

 Individual Feedback Session

Individual feedback sessions will commence in October 2019. 

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. 


Cost: 

$520 for the 5-week program and individual feedback session.  New participants are also required to attend an initial assessment with a clinician ($165) and parent background information and planning session ($165). 



Participants with a Medicare Mental Health Care Plan:

The Friday group, run by Connie Buckingham, is eligible for rebates with a valid Mental Health Care Plan. Both initial sessions attract a partial Medicare rebate of approximately $83.

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.

The Wednesday group, run by Cameron, is not eligible for rebates with a Mental Health Care Plan. This group is open to participants with Plan- or Self-Managed NDIS packages or those who are full-fee paying. 


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.
