Register for Teen Support Group

Teen support group is one of the most powerful tools in helping teens grow and get better along side their peers.  When teens realize they are no longer alone in their struggles they begin to see there is help and there is hope. Each group is led by a trained therapist with a small group of 4-7 members and ensures positive productive conversation as well as development of new coping skills.

Although some teens are apprehensive at first, once they take that first step out of their comfort zone more often than not group will become the highlight of their week and something they schedule their whole week around.

Group is offered virtually and in -person depending on everyone's location and availability.

GROUP RULES

Before clicking submit, please agree to read and agree to communicate with your child our group rules:

Being  a  part  of  the  Teen  Support  Group  is  a  privilege  and  as  a  result  we  have  a  few  rules  to make  group  the  best  experience  for  everyone.    

 

Breaking  group  rules  can  result  in  not  being  able to  attend  group  unless  you  follow  a  group  re-entry  plan.

 

1. It  is  not  permitted  in  group  to  glorify  destructive  behaviors  including  self  harm,  substance use,  eating  disorders,  sexual  promiscuity,  criminal  activity,  or  violence.

 

2.    Once  group  starts,  electronic  devices  are  only  tolerated  to  share  examples  with  very  minimal use.    Headphones  during  group  while  others  are  talking  or  fixating  on  your  phone  will  not  be allowed  and  is  considered  rude  to  other  group  members.

 

3.    Smoking  or  the  use  of  substances  are  not  allowed  on  the  property  of  Alpine  Connection Counseling  offices.  It  is  also  not  allowed  to  come  to  group  under  the  influence  of  any  kind.    If someone  comes  to  group  high  or  under  the  influence,  they  will  be  asked  to  leave.

 

4.    If  a  group  member  discovers  another  group  member  is  in  danger  of  hurting  themselves  or others,  they  have  a  responsibility  and  are  required  to  tell  Christian,  a  parent,  or  a  responsible adult.  

 

5.    Respect  for  self  and  others  in  the  group  is  mandatory.    Interrupting  others,  gossiping  outside of  group,  being  too  aggressive,  attention  seeking,  or  causing  drama  within  the  group  will  not  be tolerated.

 

6. Dating  in  group  usually  causes  problems  and  can  negatively  effect  the whole groups focus and attention and will not be tolerated.
