What is the PEERS® Social Skills Group for Teens program?
PEERS® stands for Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®). It is a proven method to teach adults ways to make and keep friends.
PEERS® is a 14-week evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated youth in middle and high school (12-18 years of age) who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends.
Family members are an important part of this program. When youth attend classes, a parent or worker also attend classes. The PEERS curriculum for caregivers is taught in these classes. Family Member / Worker participation is required.
