Greetings: Please share this with anyone who may benefit from this information. Thank you.

Dear Community Member: Queens College Psychological Center (QCPC) is offering a Children's Social Skills Group for girls ages 6 to 10. The group is expected to start March 5, 2015 and run on Thursdays from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm for 10 sessions. This social skills program is based on extensive research, with the goal of increasing children's self-esteem & social skills in a supportive environment. The group activities focus on the development of life skills such as problem solving, using appropriate social skills, making and keeping friends, and how to deal with stress and conflict. Interested participants will be offered a brief phone screening followed by an in person interview to ensure that your child’s needs can be best met by this group. As a community service, part of the cost will be subsidized by the college, such that the fee for participation will be $75.00 (this includes the application, group screening, child group sessions, and parenting sessions). The fee may be further reduced in the case of financial need. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.

Also continuing is the QCPC ’s FREE Coping with Depression Program for Adults. (Therapist’s who speak Spanish are also available).

Other Services: QCPC's mission is to bring treatment programs based on extensive research to benefit the community directly. The clinic continues to offer treatment for problems such as depression, stress, anxiety, interpersonal/relational issues, dissatisfaction with current personal or interpersonal life choices,  grief and bereavement, coping with medical illness or disability, trauma, self-esteem and body image concerns, parenting issues and adjustment to changing life circumstances. For children, typical problems may include separation anxiety, school refusal, social anxiety, fears, phobias, social skills deficits, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), tantrums, aggression, depression, moodiness, impulsivity, defiance and disobedience.  The clinic team works closely with our child clients’ schools and does school visits when necessary.Fees for these services are based on a sliding scale from zero to fifty dollars (average fee is $10), that takes into account personal and/or family income and circumstances. (Therapist who speak Spanish are also available). This community mental health service is a training and research center operated by the Ph.D. program in clinical psychology. Advanced doctoral candidates in the college’s Clinical Psychology doctoral program provide treatment to patients under the close supervision of experienced, licensed psychologists on the Queens College faculty.
