This group is intended for adolescents who have risk factors on any of the four ecological levels: personal, family, social, and societal. This program will serve middle and high school students. This group will help the adolescent how to regulate their emotions so they can think clearly; how to notice and name their thoughts, emotions, and triggers; how to communicate effectively with others; to take responsibility for their own thoughts, feelings, and behavior without blaming others; and how to resolve the problem (and therefore our anger) in an effective way using assertive behavior. This group will be held once a week from on Mondays from 6-7 pm and will be co-ed.
