Individual Therapy- consists of a one on one setting created by the therapist so that the troubled teen may speak openly with the counselor. Individual therapy offers a safe setting and the undivided attention of a therapist who is trained to listen to and specifically help teens with the issues they are struggling with. Teens that have serious issues in some cases feel more comfortable discussing their issues in this closed setting.

Group Therapy- In many cases therapists find more success with troubled teens if they use group therapy sessions. The reason this is so effective is that teens are more prone to accept criticism and or feedback from a peer rather than an adult. Teens always like to think that they know best and there is nothing an adult can tell them they don't already know. Also when put in a setting with one or more teens that are struggling with similar issues troubled teens feel supported and are more likely to open up to the therapist.
