Adolescent Therapy helps adolescents in a variety of ways. They receive emotional support, resolve conflicts with people, understand feelings and problems, and try out new solutions to old problems. Goals for therapy may be specific (change in behavior, improved relations with friends or family), or more general (less anxiety, better self-esteem).
Adolescence is a particularly difficult time in our life cycle. Adolescents become preoccupied with their internal world, a phenomenon called “adolescent egocentrism” and they believe that the feeling they are experiencing are unique to them. In addition, many teens feel that everyone is judging them, a phenomenon referred to as imaginary audience. Therapy help adolescents to make a smoother transition into your adulthood and to deal with the following issues:
- Body image issues
- Sexual acting out
- Challenging authority
