Adolescence is a difficult time for anyone. Add additional triggers and it’s easy to overextend one’s natural coping resources. Individual therapy can be helpful, but often once a week just is not enough to meet the needs of a struggling teen. Innova’s IOP for teens meets teens where they are to provide them with the support they need to survive adolescence.
IOP meets 3 evenings a week, after school, in times that are conducive to a teenage schedule. Two days are virtual to minimize parental responsibility, while one day has an in-person option to add socialization and interactive opportunities.
Graduates of our Teens’ IOP have increased communication skills, ability to handle stress, and greater emotion regulation, making them more prepared for young adulthood.
Provides ways to identify shame, protect against its impact and move past it to protect one’s sense of self-worth.
Offers practical life skills for dealing with emotions, setting boundaries, having difficult conversations and downregulating when life becomes overwhelming.
Looks at ways to identify healthy vs. toxic relationships, move past old patterns and create a foundation for positive interactions.
Since starting Teen IOP, our daughter has been using different skills to deal with her emotional spirals. Just this week she chose to go to the nurse's office and take her medications and talk with the counselor about how she was feeling, instead of acting out like she normally would. We can see the changes that are happening in her behavior and in how she is thinking and feeling.
