Oakes' Gaming Group is On

New Adolescent Group 

Oakes Annual Newsletter

Oakes is resuming our Gaming Group for youth aged 12-15 years old. This therapy group is a great space for youth who are over-engaged with online gaming or lacking in social connections to get support in developing more meaningful relationships, build self-esteem, and practice emotional regulation strategies. The group will be meeting virtually for now, with a plan to transition back to in-person meetings when it is safe to do so. Members must have Medi-Cal to participate. Please see our flyer here for additional details. 

Starting now, Oakes Children’s Center is excited to launch a weekly skills group for adolescents who struggle with managing strong emotions, keeping friendships, and achieving personal goals. Connect with like-minded peers to learn effective tips and techniques derived from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). We’ll help you develop a skill-based plan to reach a more fulfilling life!
