Social & Behavioral Solutions
Many children or teens come to San Diego’s ClubXcite because they struggle socially making or keeping friends or behaviorally, needing to better manage impulsivity, defiant behavior, anxiety, and other struggles. It is natural for a student to seek friendships, but often a child or teen is missing the awareness of appropriate social cues and positive communication to bridge the gap with the others. When a student has difficulties making friends, gets made fun of, or is bullied, it can lead to a child or teen withdrawing socially or can lead overcompensation in other ways. Both can have an effect on the students’ self-esteem and can lead to other challenging behaviors.
The Social & Behavioral Mentoring programs provide these children or teens with opportunities and solutions. Many of the programs use a “big-brother / sister” advocate who is distinct from their parents, teachers, friends and other more traditional professionals involved in their life. The mentors can pick the child or teen up from school, get some homework done, play or teach the individual new sports, do recreational activities, or just hang out. Youth see our mentors as “cool” guys and girls who they are proud to hang out with. Through their time together the mentors are able to give a child or teen some perspective on their struggles and to build confidence in their abilities and promote their strengths but also be explicit about reaching goals and discuss areas requiring attention. Through our fun, natural, non-clinical approach, students have a forgiving forum to learn to better identify peer cues, manage their emotions, come to terms with anxiety, role play challenging situations, and more. With the support of our mentors, students gain increased confidence in themselves and dramatic social, academic, and athletic changes take place in school and at home.
For students who need more professional therapy or intervention through a licensed specialist ClubXcite in San Diego offers a one of a kind Specialist Service. The key to quick and lasting results is not only a skilled professional working with your child but the day to day practicing and application of the concepts or skills learned. ClubXcite can provide you with one of our Specialists who work hand in hand with our skilled mentor who supports the student day to day reinforcing the learned strategies. Our approach not only quickens success but it is also cost- effective.
