Bowman Small Groups


Bowman students can be part of different small groups with a school counselor as a facilitator. Each group includes six to eight students and meets during lunch or WIN (What I Need) time one day each week for six weeks. Each meeting will be approximately 30 minutes in length and will take place during lunch or WIN time.  Students in the group will be given time to eat during the session. Small groups will not disrupt instructional time. The groups begin in September and continue throughout the school year.  Students must have permission from their parents or legal guardian in order to participate.  


Small Group offerings vary from year-to-year. This year small groups include:

  • Coping Skills-  Focuses on helping with self regulation for students struggling to manage their emotions.

  • Social Skills- Focuses on making friends, being a good friend and manners.

  • Changing Families Group- Emphasis on coping with divorce or separation.

  • Grief Group- This group will be led by a clinician from Fernside Grief Support.  This group is for students that have experienced the death of a family member (parent, caregiver, sibling, etc.)

  • Additional groups: Our School Counselors work with therapists from Cincinnati Children’s and local community resources to provide additional support for students.  Please contact your child’s school counselor if you would like more information.
