A social skills group based on a positive approach where the focus is on the young person’s strengths, rather than on their difficulties. Topics explored within the group include bullying, anger, friendship and loneliness. These emotive subjects are presented in an approachable and non-confrontational way. The group is very structured and combines using worksheets with games and relaxation. It uses cognitive behavioural techniques to help young people identify feelings, both their own and those of other people. (Holmes et al 2011)
