The Program for the Education and Enrichment or Relational Skills (PEERS©) is the leading research-based social skills training program. The 14 week program is geared towards the needs of those ranging from 12 to 17 years old, using a highly individualized approach. The PEERS© program fosters the development of awareness of self and others, particularly with regard to social thinking. Topics covered include: how to use appropriate conversational skills, how to appropriately use humor, how to choose appropriate friends, how to handle rejection, teasing, and bullying, and more. Research has shown that the gains made in this program are maintained 3-5 years later (Laugeson et al., 2013).
