Joint sessions involve two members being in a session together with the counselor. Members are paired based on appropriate fit, age, and needs. The joint session dynamic offers a place where your child can experience support, give support, understand more clearly how he/she relates to others, and examine their own thoughts, feelings, and views. Mutual respect and a chance to create a positive social interaction are primary ingredients in joint sessions.
Joint sessions provide members with opportunities to positively interact and relate, improve social skills, boost self-esteem, learn to problem solve, feel empowered, enhance creativity, and manage behavior and emotions.
From these opportunities, joint sessions can be a powerful and valuable tool for developing social skills, building emotional confidence, encouraging positive peer interactions, and supporting imagination and creativity.
