Teens deal with anxiety, grief, depression and emotional trauma nearly every day. Add school stressors and social media triggers to the mix and teens need mental healthcare supports that are unlike anything this generation has ever faced.
Our intensive therapy program for teens focuses on the emotional, social and psychological coping skills needed to navigate living a more balanced positive life and increase stress-tolerance while decreasing impulsive behaviors that cause negative consequences.
Our teen intensive therapy strives to increase effective interactions with others, understanding of our thoughts and mastery of our emotional responses.
Our teen intensive therapy program is designed to help manage:
We utilize elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in a group therapy model that focuses on modules consisting of mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness.
This program offers more intensive therapy than a weekly office visit and doesn’t require an overnight stay or 24-hour care. The program includes group therapy, individualized case management with a licensed clinician and psychiatric medication management by a board-certified psychiatric provider. The program meets three times a week for three hours each session, hence the intensive therapy per the frequency and duration.
In group therapy we do psychoeducation, coping skills, learn how to break generational trauma, lower self-harm/suicidal ideation, how to build healthy boundaries, improve self-esteem and self-confidence. Group therapy also helps people relate to each other’s experiences so they do not feel alone.
You will be assigned a therapist that will assist with managing your time here at Inland Northwest Behavioral Health. This therapist will meet with you monthly to complete a treatment plan and update treatment goals with you as you progress through treatment. Your therapist will also help you develop a safety plan and after care plan to meet your needs once you are completed with the program.
