Why groups are great for teens...
The teen years are an amazing, intense time of growth and maturation. Children this age begin to naturally pull away from their families and begin looking to friends for love, acceptance, and advice. While peers relationships can be supportive and healthy, often friends may be experiencing many of the same scary feelings and uncertainties. Teen groups, when facilitated by a trained professional, tap into the power of peer relationships while also offering a new way to approach and understand problems. Add creative expression and opportunities to truly connect into the mix and something magical can happen, allowing feelings of isolation and loneliness to lessen or disappear.
