Jeffrey Waitkus's Groups

Adolescent CBT Skills Group

Designed for adolescents, ages 14-19, who may be struggling with depressed mood, anxiety, and low frustration tolerance. Adolescents who have difficulty managing their strong emotions, feel socially ineffective, and/or have low self-esteem may find this group particularly helpful. This group focuses on identifying thought processes, emotions, and behaviors that occur in response to stressful situations. Once these factors are identified, we work to adaptively change those cognitive and behavioral responses, fostering a positive shift throughout the adolescent's psychosocial life.
