PEERS for young adults is an evidence-based social skills intervention for motivated young adults who are interested in making and keeping friends and or developing romantic relationships. Young adults and social coaches (including parents or other caregivers) attend 16 weekly group sessions for 90 minutes per week.
Young adults are taught social skills through didactic lessons and role play demonstrations and practice the skills during group socialization activities. Social coaches attend separate sessions simultaneously and are taught how to assist young adults in making and keeping friends and/or dating.
