Peers are a significant part of an adolescent's life, which is one reason why participating in an outpatient therapy group for adolescents might be helpful to your teenager.
Adolescent Group Therapy
In this group for adolescents ages 13-17, participants examine issues that affect relationships with family, friends, and/or school achievement: family issues, impulsivity, procrastination, substance use/addictive behaviors, depression, shyness/social anxiety, self-esteem, self-worth, social skills, Internet use, communications skills and more.
This group meets Wednesdays from 4 to 5:30 pm.
Adolescent Skills Group
In this group, participants will focus on developing skills to address the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviors through experiential learning. Group leaders will integrate the teaching of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) skills with creative arts, mindfulness and movement activities. The skills group benefits adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, perfectionism or adjustment/transitions to life stressors.
This group meets Mondays from 4 to 5:30 pm.
