Secret Agent Society

Behaviour

Secret Agent Society is a spy-themed group-based cognitive behavioural therapy program for kids 8-12 years old that targets emotional regulation and social functioning. It teaches children how to: recognize emotions; express their feelings in appropriate ways; cope with feelings of anger and anxiety; communicate and play with others; cope with mistakes, transitions, and problems; prevent and manage bullying and teasing; and acknowledge their personal strengths. This group involves child and parent/caregiver participation. This program is facilitated by Autism Therapists and supervised by a Registered Psychologist. A screening will be completed in order to determine whether this group is clinically appropriate. Parents/caregivers who are interested should contact us by July 31st to book a screening appointment.
