Therapy is not voluntary and the use of deficit-based models
Teens are often forced to meet with therapists. Teens are not enrolled in the journey when asked for compliance. To make things worst, therapists use what is called a deficit-based model where they are forced to make a diagnosis for their patients.
Therapy is expensive
Most insurances do not cover mental health. The typical therapy session runs $100-$200 per 50-minute session. After that the options available skyrocket. The typical wilderness therapy or residential treatment program costs over $50,000, over $500 per day for 3 months of work.
No time commitment
50-minutes per week is simply not enough time to make a deep, everlasting change. You need practice. To improve life one must improve the quality of experiences.
