ADOLESCENT GROUPS:  These groups are aimed at adolescents ages 13 to 18 and run from September 20, 2012 until May 30, 2013.  We will have several new features to the group that should make for a terrific year!  We will be starting an adolescentGirls’ Group in addition to our Boys’ Group.  We will also be using an evidence-based curriculum for adolescents that was developed at UCLA (PEERS).  This curriculum involves a Parent Group as well to support the teens’ use of new skills in daily life.  As always, our group sessions alternate weekly between age-appropriate community outings and lessons in our offices using role playing and other hands-on activities.  Weekly meetings last from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m.  A schedule of sessions is attached.  To obtain more information or sign up, call Jubel Morgan, R.N. at             (801) 587-3775      .
