Teen Support Groups

Group Therapy is an effective therapeutic modality for teens because teens are much more receptive to the influence of their peers during adolescence. Therefore, positive peer groups represent a powerful intervention that is a source of persuasion, stabilization, and support, particularly when they are working to identify personal goals and interests and/or overcome thoughts and feeling associated with anxiety and/ or depression. Group therapy at Coyote Coast fosters healthy attachments, provides positive peer reinforcement, and acts as a forum for self-expression and new social skills.

 

Coyote Coast is currently offering two Teen Support Groups to assist teens in managing various challenges common to adolescent life. (Ages 15-17)

Young Women's Group

Discussions center on the following:

  • Improving self-image & self-story

  • Relationships with family & peers

  • Setting goals & making healthy choices

  • Impact of experimentation and/or abuse of drugs and/or alcohol

Young Men's Group

Discussions center on the following:

  • Improving social skills & frustration tolerance

  • Effectively managing anger & expressing thoughts and feelings

  • Setting goals & making healthy choices

  • Impact of experimentation and/or abuse of drugs and/or alcohol

     

Group therapists use a variety of methods and activities to deepen the therapeutic process and support member connection, collaborative reflection and self-awareness. Activities include, but are not limited to yoga workshops, expressive arts therapy, and outdoor activities such as sea kayaking and hiking.
