Teen Support Group at Growth thru Change

Teen Support Group

(MONDAYS AT 5PM.)

Growth thru Change believes in healing through the group process. Group therapy allows individuals to share similar experiences, contribute different perspectives, and allow for a richness of insights. Identifying with others encourages hope as group members work collaboratively in the healing process. Having a forum to address issues with peers in the safety and structure of a professionally led group creates closeness and a sense of shared purpose. Groups provide social support, they improve social networks, and they can reduce stigma, isolation, and feelings of alienation

Our teen group is populated solely by teens because peers are the most influential people in a teen’s development. While individual therapy remains an important component of our program, teens are often more open and honest in groups, and more likely to identify with the feelings and issues expressed by others. Topics range from depression, anxiety, medication management, peer pressure, bullying, emotional regulation, social skills, and self-esteem.
