A-Z Teen Health Glossary


At Paradigm Austin, we understand that healthy peer relationships are a key component to teens’ lives and often, closely related to their overall well-being. Teens developing positive peer relationships is an important aspect of mental health development on several levels, including the teens’ abilities to participate and engage in group activities, whether they be in school, on sports teams, or with friends.

To this end, at Paradigm Austin we’ve designed a teen social health therapy component of our mental health treatment programs, which is designed to ensure that teens have support both to improve current relationships and to establish new ones, moving forward. Below are the descriptions of current teen social health therapy programs we offer, as part of our overall treatment plans.
