This unique NECBT program is designed for children and adolescents ages 8-15 struggling with anxiety and depression. If your child is a target of bullying, has eroding self esteem, has a low frustration tolerance, is irritable and/or refuses to go to school, seems withdrawn, anxious, or depressed, then this program is just what they need before they take on a new school year!
Most insurance may cover some or all. If you plan to use insurance please call the office so that we may verify your insurance benefits for coverage, and to see if you have any out of pocket costs.
Our program teaches the rudiments of Evidence Based Treatment, Interpersonal Cognitive Behavioral Skills combined Emotional/ Social Intelligence training. The children and adolescent groups will engage orientated as well as clinically based workshops. In addition we offer Art Therapy and Yoga. These activities are designed to help children and adolescents take control of their anxiety and depression while building self esteem, self confidence and social skills.
In order to ensure the safety of others, children who are aggressive and illicit signs of anger towards other children will not be admitted into group until their behaviors have begun to change. Another program is available for children with these issues needing help.
We have a zero tolerance policy for aggression, hostility and bullying in our groups.
Adolescents experiencing behavioral problems often have a difficult time adjusting to therapy. Unlike adults who usually seek therapy due to a self-realization that he/she needs help; children and adolescents are usually urged to attend therapy by adults (parents, care-providers and teachers or mandated by the court system). These kids will often resist therapy because of this. They feel they don’t have issues or that they cannot trust adults. Adolescents will not openly communicate and cooperate with those they do not trust and they can detect someone who is not genuine with ease. Therefore, establishing genuine trust, rapport, and a type of friendship is the key factor to clinical success. Without these rudiments behavioral change and the healing process cannot begin.
Many of our clinicians are specialists with Adolescents. They are able to break through with many teenagers who typically will not open up to other therapists. Once they establish rapport they are able to apply the rudiments of ICBT and help the adolescent get his/her life back on track and help relieve a lot of the stress that the family is going through. Give us a call if you are not getting anywhere with your teenager. We don’t guarantee that we can help everyone, but we certainly have had a tremendous amount of success in the past! Most of our patients come from referrals from other mothers and fathers.
In addition to individual treatment, adolescent patients may be required to join the adolescent group for further support.
