This small group counseling curriculum is awesome for helping develop self-control, emotional regulation, and positive relationship skills among middle to upper elementary boys. Sometimes, we use the same materials with boys as we do with girls or mixed gender groups. Other times, boy groups need things differentiated for them; boy-centered scenarios, traditionally “boy” themes, and a stronger focus on movement-based and hands-on activities. This group does all of that and works perfectly as a tier 2 intervention.

This ASCA-aligned resource is a complete 12-week group counseling curriculum. It is a ready-to-go group but it is also flexible. You can easily pick and choose which sessions to do, re-order them, and/or incorporate books to lengthen the group further. Book companion suggestions are included, as are “any time” discussion questions to use as needed. It is not low-prep, but I think you'll find the prep well worth the quality of the group - and the fact that all prep is one time only and you'll use this group over and over again!

Resource Includes:

  • Session 1: Welcome and Introductions (pre-survey, expectations, movement-based get to know you activities)
  • Session 2: Road Trip (board game on self-awareness and self-esteem)
  • Session 3: Use Your Controller (What is self-control? Movement-based activities)

  • Session 9: Friendship In and Out of Bounds (physical, verbal, and emotional, boundaries with movement activity)
  • Session 10: Conflict Goals and Fouls (how our actions in conflict can help or hurt the friendship and practicing I-messages)
  • Session 11: Be a Good SPORT (story + scenarios about encouraging others, being a good loser, & respecting others)
