Are You Struggling With Teen Violence?
Teen violence includes physical harm or threats of harm or violence among youth and adolescents. Teen violence can occur in the school setting, in the context of gangs, within a family, or even among peers. Teen violence can lead to trouble with the law, physical injury, and emotional disturbances.
Available Treatment Options
If one or two teens are particularly prone to violence, they may benefit from individual counseling to address any issues that lead to outbursts. Violent teens may also benefit from group counseling or inpatient programs, where they can receive more timely care and treatment for their behavioral issues from therapists and counselors. Treatment may include medication, counseling for aggression, and even mindfulness techniques that help youth cope with stress.
