 About Open Doors 

 

Open Doors Social Skills Groups are designed to provide children the opportunity to develop valuable social strategies for enhanced interactions with peers and family. Participation helps children and adolescents constructivley release pent up tension. It is comforting to hear peers voicing similar experiences, feelings and fears, making it that much easier to express their own. We focus on promoting communication, and as a result, individuals begin to explore their fears while strengthening appropriate responses to negative emotions. Help those you love learn how to define themselves and the world around them.
