During the teenage years, adolescents may face bullying, depression, anxiety, peer pressure, family problems, and many other substance abuse-causing issues. The Teen Group Therapy offered within our Teen treatment program in Los Angeles, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Westwood, Beverly Hills, & Pacific Palisades, teens will discuss issues they’re facing at home and in school, they will listen to one another’s perspectives guided by a therapist.
Most of the time, teenagers who choose to indulge in drugs and alcohol are peer pressured by friends or curious because of the mainstream media’s glorifying nature of the substances. However, there are also cases that some people consume such items to alleviate the feeling of being lost. Through the help of our therapists, teenagers in group therapy are encouraged to go deeper into situations to discuss their issues. As a group, all of the adolescents will be able to identify aspects that have led to decisions towards alcohol and drugs. Collaboration is also encouraged, so teens can hear advice from their peers who are experiencing similar issues. Teen Group therapy is highly effective, and hearing how other teens deal with addiction, behavioral issues, and family issues often helps teenagers fight the triggers while understanding more of themselves.
Group therapy for adolescents is an excellent alternative to one-on-one therapy because it allows your teen to work on the issues they’re facing in a group setting with other teens who are facing similar issues. Group therapy also has some benefits for your teen’s social skills.
1. Teen Group Therapy Can Help In learning Social Skills.
A teen group therapy session guided by a therapist is a safe environment for teenagers to be more vulnerable. Teenagers are encouraged to chime in on each other’s situations, which is often very beneficial for everyone to hear different perspectives.
2. Group Therapy Can Help Them Become More Self-aware.
Teen Group therapy is an excellent way for your child to become self-aware and gain perspective on how they interact with others. Group Therapy Los Angeles is also a great way for your teen to take tangible feedback from a therapist in a group setting and from peers experiencing similar issues. Most teens don’t talk about their emotional lives enough. They often don’t think they need therapy and don’t believe that they have problems. We refer to this as “emotional re-training.” It’s for this reason that individual therapy and group therapy is so helpful. It helps teens gain the self-confidence needed to talk about their emotions with confidence.
The main goal of Key Transitions Teen Group therapy session is to help the teens understand their perception of reality, develop coping skills to deal with stress, gain clarity about what is going on, and ultimately, feel better.
