Teen Anxiety Group
Teens, between the ages of 12 - 15 years, will benefit from this small group of approximately three to six children. Areas of difficulty include: School attendance, peer interaction and relationships, and class presentations. The program uses a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy approach to help teens identify and use positive coping strategies to manage and reduce anxiety. Core skills include identifying anxious thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, exploring more realistic thinking, and gradually facing fears. Additional skills taught are problem-solving, assertiveness, and relaxation. Practice tasks between sessions are important.
