Coming Together: A Support Group for Children of Divorce - Divorce can be a sad and stressful adjustment for children. Many children feel that they are the only ones in the world going through this monumental change. This group provides a safe place to express and normalize feelings about how their lives have changed as a result of divorce, provide support, develop problem solving skills and coping skills, and increase self-esteem.
Girl Talk! - A Support Group for Pre-teen Girls - Girls just want to have fun, but sometimes being a pre-teen and having fun is just not so easy. JFSNJ recognizes the social struggles pre-teen girls face, be it social anxiety, peer pressure, or just low self-esteem. Girl Talk speaks to these exact challenges!
Cool It: Getting a Handle on Anger– This group is specifically designed to help teens learn how to manage angry feelings in a more productive and effective way. By learning how to identify the early warning signs of anger, and practicing techniques to manage stress and reduce anger, teens can regain control and find healthy ways to express anger.
