Adolescents are often the unfortunate victims of disruptive and traumatic life events that can have a significant negative impact on their well-being, including:
Emotional abuse and neglect
Death of a loved one
In addition, their bodies and minds are in a state of constant change, as they learn how to make the difficult, and sometimes painful, transitions into young adulthood. It can be tremendously helpful for adolescents to have a regular time and space where their voices can truly be heard — where they can experience the healing and growth that comes with being genuinely understood by an attentive and compassionate adult.
