Anxiety Relief Workshop: A Summer Therapy Support Group for Teens with Anxiety (Grades 6th – 8th)

Join us for an 8-week journey of growth, discovery, & empowerment!

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is more than just feeling nervous or stressed; it’s a persistent and excessive worry that can interfere with daily life. Teens with anxiety may experience overwhelming thoughts, physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat or sweating, and avoidance of certain situations or activities. But there is hope.

The Benefits of Therapy

Therapy offers a safe and supportive space for teens to address their anxiety. By participating in therapy, teens can:

·      Learn Coping Skills: Therapists teach practical techniques to manage anxiety, such as relaxation exercises and cognitive restructuring.

·      Build Confidence: Through positive reinforcement and support, teens gain confidence in their ability to face their fears and challenges.

·      Improve Relationships: Therapy provides opportunities to explore and improve communication skills, enhancing relationships with peers, family, and others.

·      Enhance Self-Awareness: Teens develop a better understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, empowering them to make positive changes.

Therapeutic Approaches

At our Summer Therapy Support Group, we utilize evidence-based therapeutic approaches tailored to the unique needs of teens with anxiety. Our methods include:

·      Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT helps teens identify and challenge unhelpful thought patterns that contribute to anxiety. By replacing negative thoughts with more realistic and balanced ones, teens can reduce anxiety and improve their coping skills.

·      Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT focuses on building skills in mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills help teens manage intense emotions and navigate challenging situations more effectively.

·      Mindfulness Techniques: Mindfulness practices teach teens to stay present and nonjudgmental, reducing anxiety and promoting a sense of calm and acceptance.
