The Four C's
Connect With Others
To address problems with alienation, trust, and social support, adolescents learn about and practice communication skills using MAKE A LINK (adapted from the interpersonal skills in DBT).   Sessions also assist members in identifying sources of social support (ranging from people in their immediate family, to individuals in the larger community such as teachers, caseworkers, etc.).  Handouts that outline different types of support are used in conjunction with worksheets to further aid members in identifying past, present, and future potential sources of support so that they can better communicate their needs to others.
