Girl Talk (Durham)- Summer 2023
DEVELOPING SELF-ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE IN PEER INTERACTIONS FOR GIRLS
For children ages 7-9 years
Girl Talk is a program focusing on helping young girls navigate social situations, negotiate peer interactions, and develop healthy friendships by targeting self-esteem, communication, and self-advocacy skills. Through the use of direct instruction, paired with multiple opportunities for practical application of learned skills, girls will learn the skills they need to successfully navigate the social world. Themed days, such as mock birthday parties or sleepovers, provide safe and motivating opportunities for girls to learn and grow. This program will include social communication and sensory motor activities in the sensory gym, games, art and concepts from curriculums such as Social Thinking and Zones of Regulation through a neurodiversity-affirming lens.

- Peer perspective taking

Children are expected to attend every session (barring illness), as the sessions build on each other and group dynamics are an important component. You will not be reimbursed for missed sessions. If you have any questions about the new Emerge Clubs changes or payment options, please refer to our FAQ!
If your child is not attending therapy sessions at Emerge, we will be in touch with you to set up a brief free screening to determine if this program is a good match for your child
