The Laughlin Children’s Center is offering a 6-week group for teens that want to learn ways to cope with a variety of issues. The group will include concussion management as well, for teens impacted by concussions. Teens do not have to have a history of concussion to participate in the group. The sessions for high school students (grades 9-12) is centered around dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), which includes teaching adolescents’ mindfulness, interpersonal, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills. This hybrid in person/virtual Zoom call will be hosted by Morgan Oldham. Morgan is a PsyD student from Nova Southeastern University in Florida. She is currently completing a portion of her pre-doctoral internship at Laughlin Children’s Center. Morgan is trained to provide the DBT curriculum which can be offered in school or in an outpatient setting.
The material learned throughout each session will equip your high schooler with skills and resources to help them cope with home and school life. This skills-based training teaches awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings, and environment and focuses on fostering tolerance and adaptability to change. Each session will consist of discussion, skill development, and reflection on various topics and practices. An ever-growing evidence base indicates that learning about and practicing these skills can benefit adolescents as they make their way into adulthood.
This group will cost $150.00 for the entire 6-week group. This fee must be paid at the time of registration and no refunds will be given for missed classes.
Space is limited.
Parents can also register by calling Laughlin Children’s Center at 412-741-4087.
