We’re excited to announce the return of our Organizational Skills Training Group for Middle School Students on Wednesday, October 7th, now with a new 8-week format adapted for school during these unprecedented times. Organizational skills training (OST) is a proven system for improving executive functioning skills for students who struggle to keep track of their school assignments, organize the materials they need, manage their time, and plan long-term assignments. In each session, students will learn effective routines to increase their academic success. Parents will also participate in a portion of each group to learn how best to support their children in transforming these new skills into habits.
October 7th – November 25th
5:30 PM – 6:45 PM
Led by William Benson, Psy.D.

What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a collaborative, present-focused treatment that focuses on changing patterns of thinking, behavior, and emotional responding that are associated with distress. In CBT, clients learn techniques to recognize and change these patterns to improve daily functioning and life satisfaction.
What is DBT?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a highly specialized form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy designed to help people who have pervasive difficulties managing their emotions. DBT is a mindfulness-based therapy that balances the use of change strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy with acceptance strategies from Zen.
