Psychotherapy For Teens
During psychotherapy, your teen will learn about their specific mental health condition and be taught to understand better their moods, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Psychotherapy for teens can be conducted in an individual, family, or group setting and can help adolescents and their concerned adults. The psychotherapy sessions usually last under an hour and are typically held weekly with the teen patient and their therapist actively involved in the psychotherapy. The therapist will develop a trusting relationship between themselves and your teen. This trust is essential to effective psychotherapy.
One-on-one psychotherapy is just one of the treatment options offered within our psychotherapy program. A trained professional will help your teen work through their various personal issues in an approach that has been proven to be an effective treatment option for a variety of emotional difficulties and mental illnesses.
Colorado teens engage and interact with other young people during group psychotherapy in a safe space designed to foster camaraderie and vulnerability. The supportive setting for group psychotherapy has a myriad of benefits for teens working hard to overcome their mental health issues, including:
- Being held accountable by their peers
- Sharing and hearing personal stories of successes and fails
- Learning from other teenagers facing similar mental health struggles
- Developing a sense of empathy
- Finding a supportive community and network of teenage peers to rely on going forward
Your teen may be empowered in sharing their journey, pitfalls, and moments of success with the group. This is because when they feel safe enough to be vulnerable and verbalize their own unique mental health story, they will come to understand that they are not alone. Seeing and hearing firsthand that others are facing similar issues may allow your teenager to open up, listen to new ideas, and receive the social interaction and human connection necessary for growing and overcoming their mental health disorder.
The family therapy program at Imagine Fort Collins is a psychotherapy approach that assists your teenager with their communication. In this psychotherapy for teens, they learn to speak to, listen, and set boundaries with family members and peers. One of the other benefits of this type of psychotherapy for teens is the lessons on resolving existing conflicts and becoming equipped with the emotional tools needed to handle future disputes healthily.
Family therapy may help with:
- Encouraging understanding
- Improving communication
- Reducing stress
- Improve relationships
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Within our psychotherapy program, your teen may participate in cognitive-behavioral therapy. This approach to treating mental health is based on several core principles, including that psychological problems are based, in part, on:
- Unhelpful ways of thinking
- Learned patterns of unhelpful behavior
- The need to learn better ways of coping with these thoughts and patterns
A CBT program at Imagine Fort Collins is one of the teen mental health treatment programs we offer that aims to relieve a teen patient’s symptoms by prioritizing helping them do thought exercises inside and outside the sessions. Cognitive-behavioral therapy will help teach teens vital coping skills and new ideas for handling challenging situations today and in the future.
