By now, I hope you’ve heard the buzz about our upcoming Kids INTEGRATED group at Still Waters Counseling.
For some highlights from our Fall group, check out this video!
Yes, Kids INTEGRATED is an acronym that stands for: Kids Internalizing Natural Techniques to Energize, Grow, and Regulate the self, Actualizing a Transformative Experience of Development.
Facilitated by a group of trained therapists, this unique group is designed to help struggling kids grow in 5 different areas: emotion regulation, self-acceptance, empathy and attunement, reciprocal relationships, and kindness toward self and others. Peer interactions are emphasized and the group draws from disciplines including interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, tai chi, yoga, and art therapy to encourage brain integration, emotional regulation, and social skill building.
We’re proud of what we’re building and we think it’s a fantastic community resource, but don’t take our word for it! Here’s what some parents had to say:
“He resets himself. Tantrums don’t last as long. Less frequency of tantrums”
“[Our child’s] empathy increased. That has been refreshing to see”
“[The kids] were better regulated afterwards”
The kids had some comments too:
“I really liked that I got to meet kids with [similar conditions] and got to play and interact with them”
“I liked how we got to meet different kids and doing different activities like the balance boards”
This time round, the group is being offered for kids ages 10-13, and will meet for 6 weekly sessions on Monday evenings, staring February 25th. See attached flyer for more details. Yes, we accept most insurances, but an intake is required, so call soon to reserve your spot! Call: 734-944-3446.
