peer dyads & triads

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

Our dyad/triad therapy sessions provide nice opportunities for the child or adolescent to practice their social emotional skills with 1 or 2 peers who have compatible therapy goals. The sessions are tailored, goal-oriented and skills-based.

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

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

Peer partners 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 interactive exercises and we typically enjoy a snack together.

Sessions take place at Seesaw studio or off-site.
