Understanding REBT for Teens 

Rational emotive behavior therapy is an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy that focuses on helping individuals understand and change their beliefs and thought patterns. It is used to help people of all ages, including teens. 

REBT is based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all interconnected and that by changing thoughts and beliefs, teens can change how they feel and behave. This is particularly important for teens who may struggle with negative or self-defeating thoughts. 

Our Approach to REBT for Adolescents 

We follow a trauma-informed care approach in the integration of REBT into programming. We believe that understanding and addressing any underlying trauma is crucial for long-term healing. Our philosophy empowers teenagers to take control of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors through rational thinking and self-reflection. 

Our REBT program provides numerous benefits to teens and adolescents. It fosters emotional resilience, enhances coping skills, and boosts self-esteem. Through this therapy, young individuals develop healthy thought patterns and behaviors that contribute positively to their overall well-being. 

REBT in Care 

Therapists work with teens at our center in individual, group, and family sessions to provide a range of benefits unique to each setting.  

Individual Therapy 

During individual therapy, the therapist works one-on-one with the teen to identify unhelpful thought patterns and beliefs. They help teens challenge these thoughts and develop more rational ways of thinking. The goal is to empower them to take control of their emotions and behaviors. 

Group Therapy 

Group therapy provides a supportive environment where teens can share their experiences and learn from others. Our therapists facilitate discussions and activities that promote healthy communication skills and coping strategies. 

Family Therapy 

Family therapy involves the teen’s family, where the therapist helps them understand their role in the teen’s recovery. This approach can improve family dynamics and relationships while also providing teens with a strong support system at home. 

Therapy is just one piece of our comprehensive approach to teen mental health care. By taking a well-rounded approach, we support true, lasting healing.
