The Launching Skills (7th & 8th grade)


The Launch Pad ATL is pleased to announce our new adventure therapy group for adolescent boys, called The Launching Skills! This group is specifically designed for 12 - 14 year old boys (approximately 7th & 8th grade), and builds on the curriculum of our Tools For Launching group, but is also open to new members! This is an ongoing group and clients may join anytime after the initial start date, with a full commitment.*

Our groups provide a highly therapeutic experience and attend to the unique challenges of each participant.  This is in part because there are two therapists/facilitators per group, with a maximum of 8 participants.  Groups will focus on skill development in the areas of resilience, problem solving, healthy communication, mindfulness, and a wide range of other social emotional skills.  

Group activities will include: mountain biking, long-boarding, slack-line, nature hikes, as well as other outdoor activities. 

*A full commitment to group means six sessions. 

*An initial screening appointment is required prior to admission to the group.  Please call or email to set up this initial appointment.
