Preteen Support Groups
The Preteen or Tween years (ages 11-13) are a transitional period when the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence begin.

For help with preteens or for a Philadelphia preteen support group these Philadelphia preteen support groups provide help with preteen development issues. They include preteen support groups in Philadelphia, preteen psychologists, and preteen counselors. They can help with preteen behavior, preteen learning and preteen body image issues.

They'll also help with tweens in Philadelphia, communicating and understanding your tween tween body image concerns.

What is the difference between Group Therapy and a Support Group?
Philadelphia Support Groups and Group Therapy both offer a safe place to explore important issues. It is important, however, to understand the difference between the two.

Group therapy in Philadelphia is led by a therapist, group psychotherapist, or group counselor, and is generally structured around an issue. The therapist guides the group through a program as the group works together to better understand thoughts and feelings. Experienced therapists lead psychotherapy groups for various ages, such as adults, and specific issues including anger management, anxiety, and coping skills.

Support groups in Philadelphia are usually facilitated by a therapist or counselor, but can also be led by members with lived experiences. Generally, a support group is less structured than a therapy group. Support groups bring together members to provide support and strength to each other, often around a common challenge such as addiction or grief.

Most therapy groups will meet for a fixed length of time with a consistent group of members, while many support groups meet for an indefinite period of time with members coming and going.
