Recognizing issues in your teen’s behavior, like isolation, problematic gaming, or substance use, can cause worry. These issues are most likely how they’re coping with challenging emotions that they don’t know how to express on their own. Creative outlets, like art or music, can help them develop new ways of addressing their feelings in healthier ways. The adolescent art therapy programming at Family First helps provide a safe, structured place to practice these outlets.
Our team of experienced therapists uses art therapy techniques to help teens explore and express their emotions in a non-verbal way. This can be especially beneficial for those who struggle with verbal communication or have difficulty opening up about their feelings. Your teen can find hope and healing at our Palm Beach Gardens, FL, treatment center. Call 888.904.5947 and find out how our adolescent therapy program could offer the support they need.
