This group is designed for youth who become overwhelmed by their emotions (e.g. distress, sadness, anger, anxiety), and who may engage in behaviors in response to these emotions that they would like to change (e.g. social withdrawal, being mean/rude, hurting others, self-harm, binge eating, making risky choices). One of four themes is addressed each month, including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal relationships. Participants are invited to join for four consecutive months, or to choose the months that they feel are most relevant. Parents are invited to attend portions of groups on a bi-weekly basis.
