Beyond - Middle School Group

The group focuses to motivate middle school students to be conscious of themselves and their environment while building self-advocacy skills. With an emphasis on social skills, the group aims to build upon individual strengths and identify potential growth areas. The group utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help students gain new skills, validate their experience, and gain confidence in tolerating difficult emotions and circumstances going forward.
