Adolescent Girls Group
This Group is primarily for girls in Middle School who are experiencing anxiety, self esteem issues, depression or having trouble regulating their emotions. Many girls in Middle School have a difficult time adjusting to expectations, social norms, peer comparisons, and feeling "good enough." This often leads to higher stress levels, depression and confidence issues.
Groups offer an educational and experiential approach to improving decision making, developing coping resources and increasing self-esteem. The Adolescent Girls Group will teach participants coping skills, anxiety defusing techniques and ways to boost self confidence without always feeling the need to compare themselves to others.
Life after getting sober can be overwhelming and filled with anxiety and self-doubt. Learn skills to help you stay on track during recovery and help develop a peer support system. Topics that will be covered include: mindful meditation, anger management, relapse prevention, having fun while sober and improving relationships/communication. You won't have to take this journey alone. Your peers will be there to provide encouragement, motivation and support when you are feeling challenged. This is not an AA-based Group.
We will address issues such as the origin of your anger, how to recognize warning signs of anger, and ways in which to cope, manage, and control behaviors associated with anger. We will teach you appropriate ways to express your anger in addition to learning about communication skills that can help you get your needs met. You will learn stress management tools and other healthy ways to manage your emotions.
Mindfulness involves a conscious direction of our awareness. It has been scientifically proven to help improve physical and mental health, especially those with chronic pain or anxiety/depression. This Group is for people who want to deepen their connection to themselves, others and their environment. This is a psychoeducational Group designed to introduce participants to the theory and practice of Mindfulness. Participants will practice meditation and relaxation techniques at each session to become more present and aware of thoughts and feelings without judging them.
