FPAM to Resume and Expand Support Groups
Great news, families!
FPAM offers a range of in-person groups for children ages 5-17! We are excited to add a social worker to our team, Sonya Lopez, MSW, M.S.Ed., who facilitates these groups on-site.
Is a support group the right fit for my child?
Does your child have big emotions? Are they sensitive to transition or change? Do they often worry or find it difficult to express how they feel? Or has their spirited nature made it tricky for them to navigate choices while learning and playing? If any of these questions feels relevant to your family, email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your interest in an in-person support group at FPAM!
How could my child benefit from a support group with peers?
A support group at FPAM can help your child with developing social and emotional skills in a safe, structured, and affirming environment. Through activities and play, your child can learn and practice strategies for emotional regulation, distress tolerance, conflict management, interpersonal relationships, and more! Upon completion of a group cycle, your child will have the tools they need to soothe their thoughts, calm their body, and engage with the world around them.
For children of any age, building and reinforcing these skills is helpful in managing stressful behaviors, but it’s also essential in shaping a robust sense of self and self-esteem!
Where will groups take place and how much will they cost?
Groups will be offered on-site at both the Philadelphia and Montgomery county offices based on enrollment. All groups offered on a sliding-scale basis and may be eligible for reimbursement through insurance.
If you have more questions about how these services could work for your child(ren), please reach out to Sonya Lopez at email@example.com. Group offerings will be customized based on interest, so all inquiries and requests will be taken into consideration.
