Teen Coping Skills Therapy Group

Does your teen struggle with regulating emotions? Have you noticed the use of unhelpful coping mechanisms to deal with problems? In today’s era adolescents can experience struggles due to the increasing pressures of society. You are not alone; it is normal to go through this process and we are here to support you! 


Take control over your emotions by joining our Teen Coping Skills Group! We developed an 8 weeks program to help youths to learn effective coping mechanisms and manage intense emotions (i.e., sadness/depression, anger, anxiety) in a healthy manner. Additionally, this group aims to help teens reduce their use of ineffective or harmful coping strategies (i.e., self-harming, negative thinking, isolation) by replacing them with more positive and helpful coping tools. 

Teen coping skills

The Teens Coping Skills Group is rooted in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), a therapeutic and evidence-based approach that strives to support individuals with managing their emotions. This group will promote acceptance-based behaviours. DBT compared to other evidence-based modalities, it has a unique emphasis on dialectical thinking, emotional regulation, and mindfulness. Furthermore, DBT places an equal focus on accepting experiences through the use of acceptance-based behaviours. DBT also teaches cognitive and emotional skills to individuals and supports them to implement these skills into their everyday lives.
