Our Mindfulness & Mood Management group for teens ages 13-17 is a great program for those who deal with anxiety symptoms, sadness or depression, mood swings and other common teenage issues! Weekly meetings will help your teen improve the ability to manage moods, decrease anxious behaviors, increase mindfulness, communicate effectively, control impulses, and more! This group is based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and combines thoughtful discussion, activities and take-home skills to work on each week.
This group meets on Thursdays from 6:00-7:00pm.
Due to low enrollment this group has been canceled for May 2019.
Enrollment is done monthly ($120 for 4 sessions) but you can join at anytime for prorated cost. We encourage participants to commit to at least 8 weeks in order to gain a basic set of skills taught but those who find continued support helpful are welcome to continue attending as long as they would like.
What Parents/Teens are saying:
“My daughter says two things about the group: 1) she likes knowing that there are other kids out there like her and 2) it forces her to think about her emotions on a weekly basis, rather than just when something "bad" happens. As her mom, I see her finishing tasks more and breaking down less. I think DBT has helped with her progress in those areas. She still has bad days, but they are fewer and farther between and she is able to re-group faster to move past things, rather than dwelling on them too much.” -Parent of participant
