BEACHSIDE TEEN TREATMENT CENTERBEHAVIORAL THERAPY

CBT Group (Cognitive behavioral therapy)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapy treatment aimed at helping Individuals identify negative emotions, behaviors, and thinking in response to difficulties and modifying how they respond based on the idea that the perception of a situation can be controlled by how you react and not on how you feel.  We collaboratively work with clients to first, identify problematic thinking and behaviors, explore new strategies for addressing them, and collectively come up with positive solutions. This exploration challenges cognitive distortions which are inaccurate thoughts that reinforce negative behaviors or emotions.  Clients are taught coping techniques to combat negative thinking.

DBT Group (Dialectical Behavior Therapy)

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based, highly effective treatment for individuals with intense emotions, strained relations, and impulsive behaviors. DBT balances radical acceptance of the client as they are, together with the necessity to change for the better. We use DBT to help our clients change chronic patterns of behavior, such as self-harm, suicidal thinking, and substance abuse. DBT groups help the client learn to tolerate distress without making situations worse, be present at the moment without judgment, observe and change strong emotions, ask for what they want/need in an effective way, and build a life worth living.

Skills andEMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Emotional Intelligence or “emotional mapping” is the process of teaching individuals to understand and manage their emotions. The concept of mapping is used to develop a clear picture of the client’s complex array of feelings; their connections to or relationships with people, events and actions; and how to navigate from one location (emotion, feeling or behavior) to another. The group seeks to help participants develop a vocabulary for their feelings, as well as a cognitive understanding of the function and social context of emotions. Through large and small group exercises, participants learn to recognize emotions in themselves and in others, and to develop empathy and the ability to manage their emotions more effectively. The development of relationships within the group is an important part of this process.

Coping Skills for Mood Regulation

We all have times when we become upset about something, or depressed, or just don’t feel positive about ourselves.  This group looks at techniques and skills that can give us more control of our emotions when we feel this way. We all may have times when we feel depressed, however, it doesn’t have to lead to a life where that depression dictates all of the choices we make.   This group helps teenagers develop skills that helps them see they have some choice over how they’re feeling. In that way, when anger, sadness or depression is felt, they can help themselves get into a better emotional place.
