So often our automatic reaction is to judge and tell ourselves that things should be different. This 8-week group will focus on the challenges that adolescents have with loving and accepting themselves just as they are.
In this group we will discuss the power of self-esteem and how being kind to ourselves with all of our imperfections can benefit our wellbeing. Group curriculum is based on the self-compassion research done by Dr. Kristin Neff, Ph.D.
This group will be facilitated by Warren Township Youth and Family therapist, AnnaMarie Seminary, MSW, LSW. For any questions, please contact her at 847.244.1101 ext. *410.
