While we practice social distancing, it is important that we practice ways to stay connected with one another. Introducing PEERS® online, an online social skills group meant for socially motivated teens to learn the skills necessary to make and keep meaningful friendships while staying socially engaged and connected to their peers. In this program, teens will discuss, problem solve and practice different social interactions to build their confidence in navigating the teenage social world.

This program is fully funded through the Ontario Trillium Foundation and is free of cost.

Topics explored: conversational skills, choosing appropriate friends, use of humor, planning a get together, using good sportsmanship, handling peer rejection and gossip.
