Adolescent Girls Group
This group helps girls learn to manage emotions, cope with stressful situations and improve self-esteem in a supportive environment along with peers experiencing the same stressors.

As an adolescent girl there are stressful situations that occur daily like bullying, peer pressure, substance use, conflict with friends, social media, body shaming, academic stressors and family conflict. 

This group will use cognitive behavior strategies to teach girls how to cope with stressors and receive support from peers. The group will also encourage growth in self-esteem and positive self-image.

For girls in grades 8 through 12. 

Group meets on Thursday at 3:00pm at NYFS.

Cost: Most private insurance plans are accepted, as are all HUSKY plans.
