Teenager Group Therapy

At ParkwayHealth Jin Qiao Medical & Dental Center

ParkwayHealth offers group therapy services for adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18 who engage in or who has a history of engaging in self-harm behaviors. Adolescents who self-harm may benefit from having a group of peers who understand what they are going through and who can offer a non-judgmental, socially supportive environment where they can share their experiences and learn coping skills to help them better manage their emotions. Group therapy interventions are based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques and interventions. DBT is an empirically-based and validated treatment for people with difficulties in emotional and behavioral regulation.

The support group will be facilitated by Dr. Alice Fok-Trela, a licensed clinical psychologist with several years of experience working with children and adolescents. Dr. Alice Fok-Trela is a U.S.-trained and Canadian-licensed psychologist.

Sessions are limited to a maximum of five participants, and reserved to adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18. For more information regarding the group, or if you would like to register, please contact Dr. Alice Fok-Trela.

Please note that group therapy is not designed to be a replacement for individual therapy, but should be used in conjunction with individual therapy.
