This chapter describes how to implement social competence group treatment for children and adolescents in a private practice setting. The authors outline key aspects of the Resilience Builder Program® (RBP), which has been integral to the growth and expansion of their group practice. The RBP uses a cognitive-behavioral framework and a comprehensive approach that incorporates self-regulation skills and emphasizes application and generalization across settings. The chapter describes the authors’ paths to this niche area of practice, related challenges and rewards, business aspects, and methods of development and implementation. Relevant resources are provided for those interested in pursuing a niche practice of social skills training.
