Coping Skills for Female Identifying Teens

Sundstrom Clinical Services is pleased to announce a four-week teen group focused on teaching and practicing important coping skills.  Teens who identify as female face a multitude of stressors including problems in their relationships, pressures to “measure up,” and academic demands.  Group therapy can be an effective way for teens to work towards improved mental health while building relationships with peers in an emotionally safe and supportive environment.  During the 75-minute group sessions, teens will have the chance to grow in their mindfulness skills, self-soothing abilities, connectedness in relationships, and taking perspective when life is challenging.  Each session will teach new skills while giving teens the chance to practice what they learn, both in session and in the weeks in between.   Past participants reported an average 25% improvement in their well-being overall, 26% improvement individually, and 27% improvement in their relationships (Outcome Rating Scale). 

Please contact Dr. Meg Boden Alvey malvey@sundstromclinic.com or at 503.653.0631 for a free 15 minute phone evaluation screening or if you have any questions.
