Group description:

Act Against Anxiety is a FREE 4-week online group for teens with stress and anxiety. We will teach resilience skills based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a science-based treatment to more flexibly respond to stress and difficult emotions.

Weekly practical skills can help your child:
  1. Better handle difficult thoughts and feelings.
  2. Figure out what really matters to them in their life.
  3. Get back to doing things that make their life more joyful and meaningful!
This group is right for your child if they:
  • Are between 13 and 17 years old.
  • Are struggling with stress or feelings of anxiety.
  • Would like to learn skills for how to better manage stress and difficult emotions.
  • Would like to be part of a supportive environment of other teens.

(To create a collaborative group environment, we ask all group members to plan to have their camera on for the duration of the group.)
