Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS®) is an evidence-based social skills intervention for teens who are interested in learning ways to help them make and keep friends. During each session, teens learn important social skills and practice them with their peers. Parents are simultaneously taught how to coach and advocate for their teens in the community. 

Topics include: 

  • Conversational Skills 
  • Choosing Appropriate Friends 
  • Entering and Exiting a Conversation 
  • Hosting Get-Togethers 
  • Demonstrating Good Sportsmanship 
  • Handling Disagreements 
  • Appropriate Use of Humor 
  • Responding to Rumors and Gossip 
  • Responding to Teasing and Embarrassing Feedback 
  • Responding to Bullying and Bad Reputations  

Throughout the program, teens will apply the skills they learn to their daily lives by practicing phone calls and get-togethers, identifying clubs or activities they are interested in joining, and more! 

Screenings for our next PEERS session are happening NOW! If you are interested in learning more, contact Jacki Mayowski at jmayo@creatingbrighterfutures or (734) 926-0740 ext. 201
