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.
In joint sessions, the usual payment of an individual session will be split between the two individuals in the session.
