THERAPEUTIC RECOVERY NETWORK
Teen Stress & Anxiety Group
Group therapy helps teens give and receive support while learning from each other and their therapist by discussing the issues they have in common. As a teen, in group you will connect with other teens who understand you and what you are going through!
This virtual process group provides a safe, supportive environment for teens, ages 14-17, experiencing common high school challenges like anxiety, stress, self-esteem/self-image issues, navigating friendships, and facing academic/social/family pressures.
The teenage years are ripe with new experiences, opportunities, and challenges. Also, during this time, teenagers’ brains are changing, and they want more independence and autonomy. There are also many stressors. For example, teenagers might worry about starting school, looking a particular way, fitting in with friends, test/schoolwork, performing in plays or sports at school or going to school dances. Now more than ever, especially with the influx of social media platforms, teens have more pressure to fit in causing higher levels of stress and anxiety.
This group offers participants a space to connect with their peers while learning coping skills and tools to build a positive self-image, increase emotional regulation, improve communication skills, and strengthen interpersonal relationships.
