peer dyads & triads

Peer Dyads or Triads are guided play therapy sessions designed for children and adolescents 3 to 18 years of age.

This is a group therapy session but tailored and small. Our sessions together provides opportunities for a child to build and practice social emotional skills with 1 or 2 peers who are compatible. The therapy is solution-focused, skills-based.

The therapist plans and guides the sessions and the focus of the therapy may be on building tools for flexibility, perspective taking, stress tolerance, anxiety/anger management, self regulation, assertiveness, friendship skills, conflict resolution, confidence and more.

Each session includes 2-3 same-aged peers and one therapist.

Peers are carefully considered and matched. Clients are matched based on age, strengths, and social emotional/behavioral goals.

During each session, the therapist guides and models prosocial skills in a playful and relaxed setting. The more natural the context is, the better. We engage in a variety of developmentally-appropriate and fun exercises and we may enjoy a snack together.
