Adolescent/Teen:The basic developmental challenges of finding oneself through engaging in and being faced with a variety of different experiences and testing the boundaries stay at the core of this phase. During this developmental phase which is a transition and preparation into maturity/early adulthood, one is confronted with various stressors, social relationships as well as exciting and scary experiences. These experiences are far different from just a few years ago, not even to think of the difference between now and a parent’s experience as a teen.

These experiences can present with its own challenges within the family, whether between parent and teen or between siblings. It can become overwhelming and often might feel unmanageable. It is important during this phase to become in touch with his/her own needs and to gain effective coping skills as well as problem solving skills. Engaging in a therapeutic process can assist a teen through this phase, offering support and the necessary guidance to embrace and consolidate experiences.
