Groups for Children and Youth
Teen Talk is designed for adolescents ages 15 to 17 who are experiencing difficulties with emotional regulation. The group teaches skills including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulations, and interpersonal effectiveness. The emphasis will be on using these skills to handle distressing situations and improve relationships.
Parents are required to attend three sessions to learn ways of supporting their children in using the skills.
