Teen Sleep Group


Nicklaus Children's Hospital
Department of Psychology, 2nd Floor

Miami, FL 33155

This program is designed for teens ages 12 to 17 experiencing difficulties related to sleep, including daytime sleepiness, trouble waking in the morning, difficulty falling asleep and waking in the middle of the night.

Nearly 70 percent of teens get less than the recommended amount of sleep as a result of various biological (e.g. changing hormones) and social factors, including early school start times, worrying, talking with friends late at night, homework and related stress. Insufficient sleep can impact mood, stress-levels, friendships, academics, memory and learning. The goal of this group is to give teens the tools and strategies they need in order to get more sleep and better quality sleep.


  • Groups are coordinated by age and meet once a week for six weeks.
  • Parents who are interested in any of the programs for their child will need to attend an evaluation session with a therapist prior to the start of the program.


Most health insurance is accepted. Please check with your provider for details.
