Beyond the Lunch Bunch: Building Effective Social Skills Groups in Your School Community

Working collaboratively, we will discuss ways to bring a social skills groups from an awkward lunch conversation to a social experience that your students enjoy and can identify and recognize that learning is taking place.  The workshop will focus on critical social skill development from understanding pragmatic language to navigating the world of relationships.  We will discuss how to shift the lens from the adults providing social skills curriculum and instructing the students on dos and don’ts of conversation-to goals and skills chosen by your students based on their daily experiences, social mistakes and successes.

    My name is Jessica Golden-Harrington and I am a certified School Counseling Director and Special Educator. My years as a student at UNH solidified my desire to be a lifelong learner.

    I started my career as a paraeducator in a traditional public school and have worked as counselor, special educator, and school administrator in a variety of settings including public schools. private therapeutic day schools, and Chartered Public Schools. I am the former Assistant Director and Head of Counseling at Academy for Science and Design Chartered Public School.

    I believe that student success starts and grows from a place of empathy, compassion, and care.
