Treatment - Adolescents/Teens
Adolescent/Teen Treatment Group
We offer a group for juveniles with sexual behavior problems or who have committed a sexual offense. The group follows a curriculum that is based on risk-relevant needs for adolescents and is focused on healthy sexuality and relationships. Due to a low census of juveniles who are appropriate for or who need group, our group is not currently operating. We have the ability to re-start the group if there is a need. Otherwise, we work with juveniles individually and with a parent/caregiver to address their treatment needs.
If you would like to make a referral, please complete our referral form and send it to us at email@example.com.
Research is clear that adolescents have better treatment outcomes when they have a supportive adult/parent/caregiver involved in the process. We agree!
At Skipped Parts, we ask adults/parents/caregivers to be involved in the process of treatment. This can include attending sessions with the therapist and adolescent, attending their own sessions with the therapist, check-ins with the therapist, etc. We ask adults/parents/caregivers be willing to be involved at least once per month, so we can best coordinate care for the adolescent and hear about how things are going at home (or other settings) from the adult's perspective.
The adolescent's therapist will keep the adults/parents/caregivers informed about how they can best participate in their adolescent's treatment. If you have general questions about this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your adolescent is already in treatment, please direct your questions to their primary therapist.
If you have questions, please contact us!
You can reach both of the clinical directors at email@example.com - we are happy to answer your questions and tell you more about the treatment services we provide.
When we work with adolescents, we also work closely with their family. We provide services and determine interventions from a developmental perspective – when talking with adolescents about sexuality we provide educational components, empower parents to have conversations with the child about sex, and focus on age appropriate healthy sexuality. For children under 12, we encourage and assist parents in finding play therapists who are skilled at sexual trauma with children.
Treatment/Therapy services we provide:
Juveniles who have committed sexual offenses
Juveniles coming out of placements
Therapeutic services for juveniles who have demonstrated poor boundaries but may not have been charged with a sexual offense
Individualized treatment planning
Sexual identity/gender identity
One of our favorite resources when talking about gender is www.itspronouncedmetrosexual.com – “Gender is one of those things everyone thinks they understand, but don’t. This tasty little guide is meant to be an appetizer for understanding. It’s okay if you’re hungry for more.”
We also provide a workshop for juvenile offenders that covers the following topics: Respect, Equality, Safety, Trust, Consent, Body Knowledge and Pornography and Internet Safety. The next date is December 21.
