For more information from one of our experienced therapists, please reach out to our office today.

Signs Your Teen May Benefit from Therapy

The decision to seek therapy is a very personal one, but also a decision that can be beneficial for persons of myriad ages and experiences. If your teen has been bullied at school, is struggling with self-image and confidence, has witnessed or been involved in a trauma, is a child of divorce, or is coping with another serious psychological issue, Plainfield teen therapy could make a positive difference in your teen’s life. Signs that your teen might need therapy include:

  • Your teen is expressing anxiety about their self-worth and confidence;
  • Your teen engages in negative or socially-unacceptable behavior;
  • Your teen demonstrates signs of trauma; or 
  • Your teen is withdrawn and seems disinterested in the world around them, even losing interest in their favorite activities and hobbies. 

Types of Plainfield Teen Therapy Methods Used

There are a number of different types of teen therapy methods that are used by psychological professionals; the type that our teen therapists may choose will be based on the type of issue your teen is coping with. Common types of therapy include:

  • Individual therapy. Teens sometimes need someone to talk to as they’re going through a quickly changing period in their life. Counselors can talk with your teen to help them develop healthy coping mechanisms and build a positive mind frame.  
  • Family therapy. While meeting with a teen one-on-one can be very beneficial, so can family therapy, where parents and teenagers meet together. This type of therapy is designed to help the family function in a healthier, more constructive way.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a more traditional form of therapy that focuses on behavior and thinking patterns. This type of therapy may be used for teenagers with behavior issues or teenagers who are coping with grief, depression, anxiety, or trauma. 

The above list is by no means complete. Ask our therapists about our strategies, and we will gladly guide you through the various techniques that are used and which one we think is best for your teen and why.
