Teen Counseling is an appropriate approach for a wilde range of teens who are displaying self destructive habits. There is no “typical” teenager because adolescents express themselfes in such a veriety of behaviors. However, there is often one commmon theme that runs through the lives of our teenagers: difficulty coping with lifes challenges in a healthy and productive manner.
Utilizing an individualized and strenghts-based approach, Whittaker Family Services effectively addresses a wide diversity of issues teenagers are often dealing with self-esteem, anger, defiance, anxiety, substance abuse and depression.
Family Therapy is essential when treating adolescents with behavioral or emotional problems. Improving communication between family membersa and helping both the parents and the teen understand how conflicts can be resolved through improved communication often result in significant improvements in the family relationship. One of the obstacles that can cause parents to delay in getting help for their struggling adolescent is their confusion about the answer to these questions. What truly defines a troubled teen? AND When does a parent really need to seek intervention?
Many parents find themselfes comparing their child to other children. Parents often oscillate between. ” My child is not as bad as their kid!” and ” Why can´t my teen act like that so-and-so´s child?” For more information please click the following link: http://www.kidshealth.org
