We Understand Teens and Young Adults
At PPG, we know all about the many important changes that come with the exciting, yet challenging years of transitioning to adulthood. Starting at age 11 or 12, adolescents begin going through many physical, mental and emotional changes and are faced with new issues that can impact their development. As they move through the teenage years and even closer to adulthood, many lack the knowledge and/or struggle with the skills they need to successfully live an independent life.
Our groups for teenagers and young adults aim to address the issues head-on, change thought processes, correct behaviors, and give your teen or young adult a new set of skills to incorporate into their daily lives; helping them be the best version of themselves and live a life worth celebrating.
Depending on the nature of the issues your teen is experiencing, group therapy can be an ideal choice for addressing your concerns and making positive changes in your teen’s life.
How Group Therapy Can Help
Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that includes individual therapy, physician oversight, and medication management services, if needed.

- Social Isolation
- Emotional Dysregulation
- Acute Shyness
- Bullying Issues
- Peer Rejection
