Teen/Young Women's Sex-Love Addiction Resources
intensives and residential care
Bethesda Intensive workshop for teen females ages 15-18
(18-year-olds still in high school) and their parents (Nashville, tn)
This clinical intensive workshop is family-based, rather than a program just for the adolescent girls themselves. Whoever is identified as the girl's parents (whether parents or step-parents - those who have primary residential and legal responsibility for the teen) are REQUIRED to attend.
The workshop is a group process where multiple families attend at the same time (normally four to six families). The participants move between brief educational segments, activities, and group settings. Some of the groups are separate gatherings of the girls and another group for the parents, where each population has a safe space to share their challenges as a family. Other groups are family therapy (with the girls and parents together) in a multi-family group setting with a male and female group leader. The intensive is active, experiential, and engaging for both the teen and the parents.
The inaugural Healing for Teen Females & Parents Workshops:
April 11-14, 2018
June 13-16, 2018
August 8-11, 2018
September 26-29, 2018
The workshop fee includes all lodging and meals for all family members attending. (Families will be housed in an executive suite at a nearby hotel.) Insurance does not cover the cost, but a no-interest payment plan is available.
