The relationship building group at Sunrise is geared toward meeting the relationship needs specific to teen girls. In this group, relationship skills are addressed in an experiential manner through in-the-moment work on relationships with each other. Problem solving skills and cognitive processing are used in the group to better understand relationship dynamics and to learn to navigate through peer and family relationships in a successful manner.
This group helps teen girls at all levels of care address interpersonal issues and provides a healthy environment of emotional support. Group members are given responsibility in this group to bring issues they would like to address and are challenged to get out of their comfort zones in meaningful, growth promoting ways.
