Emotionally Dysregulated Teens: How Parents Can Help


During adolescence, many factors can lead to strong emotions, such as conflict with friends or parents, disagreements with peers, dating, negative messages on social media, etc. Some teens seem to take it all in stride, while others have difficulty regulating their emotional responses. In the absence of positive coping strategies, teens may try to avoid or suppress their feelings. Or, even worse, they may engage in unhealthy or harmful coping strategies.

To support your teen, It's important to understand their emotional experiences and have good parenting strategies to help them learn positive ways to manage their emotions.

Parents will learn:

  • What it means to experience emotion dysregulation
  • How to identify signs of emotional dysregulation
  • Strategies to help their teen identify underlying factors
  • How to effectively communicate with their teen
  • How to help their teen develop positive coping strategies
