    The goal of this group is to help adolescents and their supportive adult learn skills in the following areas:

    • Managing intense, painful emotions, including uncontrollable anger
    • Risk-taking and or self-harming behaviors
    • Improving social and family relationships
    • Understanding and reducing frequent mood-swings and mood-driven choices
    • Understanding and reducing fears of abandonment
    • Feelings of resentment towards others
    • Adolescent/parent relational issues

    This group will help you develop a different set of skills to deal with difficulties in your life like: chronic feelings of emptiness, unfocused or obsessive thoughts, confusion about yourself, chaotic relationships, fears of abandonment, desperate or impulsive behaviors. Each 10-week group will focus on developing a certain life skill such as:

    • Making thoughtful decisions that are not driven by emotions
    • Decreasing feelings of emptiness, sadness, or confusion about self
    • Strategies to balance acceptance and change
    • Strengthen relationships while preserving self-respect
    • Identifying and working through challenging emotions
    • Learning coping skills that enhance your life and relationships
  • Anger Management (offer to youth and adults?)
    The goal of this group is to develop healthier and more effective ways to respond when faced with anger. Sessions will focus on developing better self-awareness, identifying stressors, and practicing more appropriate ways to respond when faced with triggering situations.
