Did You Know?
42% of teens report that they are stressed, but don’t feel that they have the tools to manage their stress effectively (American Psychological Association).
Benefits of The Group Experience
Unlike individual therapy, a group experience gives teens the opportunity to share their experiences, give advice, receive support and feel a sense of community and belonging under the supervision and direction of a licensed professional.
How Can Group Therapy Help Your Teen?
Groups are really valuable for teens because they are at a developmental stage where connecting with each other is a priority and it provides a powerful place to learn and practice new skills in a safe environment in order to catalyze change.
Although group is not a replacement for individual therapy, it can be a great supplement. We are happy to coordinate care with your teen’s individual therapist to support their growth. It can also be an effective first step or step down in care when your teen needs less support but still would benefit from learning and practicing coping skills and sharing current struggles in a safe environment.
This Group For Kids Who:
Struggle with anxiety, depression and self-doubt Have trouble expressing themselves or being assertive Express negative self-talk or don’t seem to “see” themselves the way others do Question their value and place in their world Need a supportive place to learn effective ways to cope with stress and emotions
So That They Can:
Effectively communicate and manage emotions Connect to others and feel understood Identify and Respond to daily stressors effectively Combat negative thinking and Improve Self-Esteem Critically evaluate the impact of Social Media on their lives
