The mission of Crimson Counseling is to provide teens and young adults with the skills that they need for a successful work, community/social, and independent life. Crimson Counseling provides hands-on instruction in the clinic and outdoor community settings. We teach key skills related to executive functioning, social interactions, and communication skills. We offer self-management and social skills training that moves you closer to independence.
What will the sessions be like?
The second hour will be community training centered around the curriculum topic. Community training is designed to help clients contact natural contingencies in order to generalize skills associated with social interaction, communication and executive functioning. Some examples may include going to the bus stop to practice transportation, or going for a hike to practice exercise.
The third hour is the rehearsal and feedback portion of the training. We review personal goals and how these goals will be realized outside of the session. We then practice perspective taking skills. Perspective taking is a very important skill to develop interpersonal relationships. It allows us to see another persons point a view, and behave in ways that demonstrate empathy.
