Parents attend separate sessions on Tuesdays and are taught how to assist their teens in making and keeping friends.
Parent (or alternative social coach) participation is highly recommended
Adolescents will learn:
Developing and maintaining friendships
Entering and exiting conversations
Using humor appropriately
Being a good sport
