What is the PEERS® Social Skills Group for Adults 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 16-week evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated adults who are 18+ years of age and 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.
