Parenting a Teen with Mental Health Struggles
At Colorado Teen Therapy, we recognize that teens don't exist in isolation. They are part of a family system and their struggles can affect the whole family. Our parent group is designed for parents of teens who are currently seeking mental health treatment, to provide parents with information, insights, skills and feedback to help them support their teen through these important years.
The Benefits of the Group Experience
This group experience gives parents the opportunity to share their experiences, give advice, receive support, learn new skills and enjoy a sense of community.
How can a Parenting Group help?
MANAGE DIFFICULT EMOTIONS Understand the intensity behind adolescent emotions, and learn important strategies for comforting, de-escalating and reasoning with your teen.
MORE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION Learn strategies for improving communication and reducing conflict in your relationship with your teen.
GAIN INSIGHT INTO HOW THERAPY WORKS Learn what happens during a therapy session, what you can reasonably expect in terms of progress, and how to communicate with your teen about their sessions.
UNDERSTAND YOURSELF AS A PARENT Reflect on your own upbringing and its impact on your parenting style. Evaluate what’s currently working for you and areas where you could use some support.
