Children and Teens
Why Children and Teens Therapy?
Today’s culture is changing every day. What was once defined as normal is being challenged and re-assigned by policymakers. The impact that this has on our children is HUGE. Today’s youth are more stressed and anxious, concerned about safety at school, confused about their gender, and driven by social media. Their playgrounds have become overtaken by bullying, they are addicted to Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, using their cell phones for sexting, and searching for pornography. Body image concerns are also beginning younger, even before middle school, leading to eating disorders and other health concerns.
Sometimes our children begin to act out emotionally or behaviorally. They begin to become angry or show signs of anxiety and depression. There can be many factors that contribute to a child’s well-being, such as a divorce or loss of an important family member, a blended family, moving to a new home, or starting school. Often times academic success becomes more challenging. Agape has trained counselors whose passion is to help bring clarity, offer help through grief and trauma, family support to divorce and blended life changes, and provide educational resources and assessments for academic improvement.
We understand the helpless feelings of today’s parents. Our clinicians are not only professionals, they are concerned parents and educators too. They stay on the cutting edge of training as technology daily ramps up the world that our kids encounter. Give us a call so we can fight together.
