Ages 13-17   Groups run by Dr. Kay Abrams

Teen girls groups serve to empower and strengthen teens as they manage academic and social challenges. Techniques include guided insight, peer sharing and feedback and social-self appraisal exercises to help girls build confidence and interpersonal competence.

Cognitive processing and experiential tools are integrated into sessions while girls learn social-emotional coping skills.
