Social Therapy: Teens and Adolescents
Atlanta Teen Counseling at Inneractions Therapy Services
Therapy for adolescents and teens can help improve their overall functioning at home, school, within the family, with peers and their social environment.
Teenagers are under a great deal of stress and are often silenced by their many academic, social and family pressures. Providing teens with the opportunity to take part in their own therapy allows them to further develop skills which promote independence. Keep in mind that many teens are in therapy today, trying to gain greater insight into the way they think, act and react.
Common Reasons for a teen to begin therapy
