Cognitive Therapy Skills Groups for Teens and Young Adults
The aim of Cognitive Therapy Skills Groups is to help teens better cope with mood, stress, and life difficulties. The therapy includes mindful strategies, cognitive-behavioral techniques, psychoeducation, and peer support. Teens helped to develop the course and classes are conducted in a confidential group therapy setting at UCLA. Parents meet in a separate space to learn how to best support their teens in building and practicing their new skills.
