The post high school or college years mark new beginnings. This time of transitions presents young adults with new freedom and opportunity, as well as challenges and life-changing decisions.

In Step offers groups to help with this time geared towards young adults, aged 18-30, who need to improve their social and emotional well-being. Group work is a powerful tool for enhancing self-esteem and solving problems more effectively. Group provides a supportive forum to work on goals, such as:

  • Improving self-esteem and strengthening identity
  • Developing an ability to express anger effectively
  • Coping effectively with conflicts
  • Improving communication and listening skills
  • Overcoming social anxiety

These concerns are not unique to young adults, but specific aspects of this period in life can exacerbate these difficulties, such as:

  • Becoming more independent from your family
  • Making meaningful friendships, outside of the structure of school
  • Beginning professional relationships, and starting new jobs or a new career
  • Growing interest in dating or pursuing deeper relationships
  • Other changing expectations when entering adulthood
