Group Details

D

  • A variety of Creative Confidence groups are offered for different developmental ages from preschool – teen.
  • Groups consist of 3 – 7 children who are close in age or in developmental level.
  • Within these small groups, your child will have specialized attention to help him or her with his or her individual challenges.
  • Each Creative Confidence group will have a particular focus depending on the age, gender and needs of children in the group.  Some groups may focus more heavily on building social skills, others may focus more on reducing anxiety and worries.  Please share your goals for your child and we will find, (or possibly create) the right group for him or her.
  • In each group, self-esteem building concepts and/or social skill will be taught followed by creative and/or physical activities.  Peer interactions and expression feelings will be integrated into each activity so that children practice and fine tune what they have learned.
  • Groups are kept small so that each child can be given individual attention and help with their challenges.
  • Each child will receive a binder to organize and keep information learned in each group.
  • Classes are filled on first come/first serve basis.

 

 

The therapeutic modalities at The Whole HeARTs Family Center are rooted in strengths based, positive psychology and each group will help children build on their strengths, self –esteem and confidence. In alignment with these beliefs, our groups are not called social skills groups, but Creative Confidence Groups.  We believe in creating a nurturing, supportive, creative environment and a group experience where kids don’t feel like there is something wrong with them, but in a place where they can learn new skills, trust themselves and focus on what is right with them!

 

Groups will be held in one of our beautiful creative arts rooms and/or in the lovely gated patio attached to our office.  Our goal is to create a therapeutic and enriching experience as well as a fun summer experience that children are excited to be a part of.

 

Each group is designed to be creative, fun and engaging for your child.  In addition to our daily lesson, will be doing activities such as:

d

  • Painting on canvases, building 3D sculptures and creating meaningful art.
  • Calm Kids Yoga, movement and sensory exercises.
  • Team building and self-esteem games.
  • Working together in the garden.
  • Making new friends and having fun!

Involvement and Ongoing Support

d

The Whole HeARTs Family Center prides itself of having one of the most effective and sought after counseling programs for children and families in the Denver area.  One of the reasons we are so effective at helping children is because we educate and empower parents to use our tools and techniques at home. You as parents hold the key to helping integrate, practice and reinforce the skills and techniques that we teach your child. We believe in the family approach and see the best, longest lasting results when we give parents the tools to make positive changes at home and in family interactions to support your child’s new behaviors.

 

  • Parents will meet the last 15 – 20 minutes of the group and go over the information that was taught to your child that day so that it can be better integrated at home.
  • Give you important feedback related to your child’s behavior in the group.
  • Parents will receive a binder during their first session with helpful tips to help your child be as successful as can be.  Printed information will also be given to you to after each session so that you can refer back to what your child learned that day.
  • Two – 15 minute phone calls over the summer to answer any questions that you might have regarding how to help your child.
  • One 15 minute follow up phone call after the group has ended to help keep you on track.
  • We are also offering 20% off regular cost of any parenting workshop (to be held monthly between the months of June and November).

 

The Whole HeARTs Family Center stands apart from other social skills groups by offering thorough parent support during the summer as well as after the groups have ended.  It is normal for parenting questions to arise and we are here to help you when you need it.  We want you and your family to be successful and will be here to help you stay on track.
