PSYCHOEDUCATION GROUPS FOR STUDENTS
EXECUTIVE FUNCTION SKILLS
Executive function is a set of cognitive skills used every day to learn and manage life, such as working memory, flexible thinking and inhibition control. Skills that fall under these three main areas include things like time management and planning, task initiation and task completion, focus, self awareness and emotional regulation. In a small group, students learn about how their brain is wired to affect their executive function skills. Through engaging activities and application of skills, group participants will learn strategies to both understand and enhance their executive functioning skills.
