FBH is happy to announce that we will be resuming a weekly group for teens, which will be held on Tuesdays from 6pm to 7pm in the Bountiful Office. This Teen Skills Group will be facilitated by two therapists at FBH, Brianna Green, CMHCI, TBC and Polly McQuarrie, MC/SC/ACMHC, both of whom have a great deal of experience working with teens. Brianna is a Board Certified Music Therapist and Polly was a school counselor for 15 years and led Hope Squad suicide support groups for youth for many years. Brianna was one of the facilitators in the last group and so any teens who attended previously will know her. We believe this will provide some continuity of care for them and a sense of familiarity.
This new Teen Skills Group will include some fresh and engaging activities, including expressive arts, music therapy, CBT, DBT, and opportunities for group interaction. Some of the skills will include:
- Emotional coping
- Social skills
- Building resilience
- Identity development
- Future planning
- And “teen choice”
The first group will be held on April 12th at 6pm in the Bountiful group room. Cost of the group will be $40 per group. Teens who participate in this group will need to be working with a therapist at FBH to help integrate group skills learning with their treatment plan. If you are interested, please contact our office by responding to this email or by phone (801-683-9340) to register your teen.
