Behavioral issues including social isolation, cutting, lack of interest in activities, irritability, disruption in conduct, lack of attention to hygiene, lack of concentration, hyper-vigilance, lying, stealing and concealing can indicate an underlying problem. The teenage years are often rife with issues related to self-esteem, identity, demands, choices and peer relationships.
Teens who struggle at school may be absent more often and/or prone to suspensions, leading to academic struggles and/or SARB action. See the School Counseling page. Teen Therapy enters the teen's world of growing independence and budding personal identity to help him or her identify and process grief, work through trauma issues, express feelings, and develop new coping skills. Therapeutic methods include talk therapy, music therapy and a variety of other creative, expressive modalities.
