A Group for Stress & Anxiety

Teen Mind & Body: Spring 2018

The Teen Mind & Body group combines skill-building and group process to maximize the integration of emotional and somatic resources. This 10-week group combines elements of the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), Laurel Parnell’s Resource Tapping, and creative exercises to build a strong foundation for managing stress and anxiety. Each week builds upon the last to enhance retention and build mind/body awareness.

Participants will:

  • Identify triggers for stress and anxiety
  • Get to know the body’s “early warning system”
  • Learn simple and effective life-long coping strategies
  • Prepare for future challenges and responsibilities
  • Share valuable experiences with supportive peers
  • Improve resources for school, performance, or social anxiety

An Integrative Mind-Body Program

Skill Building + Group Process

Beginning with the first session we combine skill-building with group process so that new tools are immediately put into practice for maximum benefit.

Somatic + Embodied Resourcing

To embody is to give a tangible or visible form to an idea, quality, or feeling. Somatic embodiment helps bridge the gap between emotional and biological experiences of stress and anxiety.

Creative + Imaginal Methods

Adolescence is one of the most potent and vital periods in life, so we utilize creative methodologies and imaginal exercises to access and strengthen the mind and body’s natural resources.
