Some kids are teased or even bullied because of weight. Just like when kids are bullied for other reasons, it is important to remember that being bullied isn’t your fault, it isn’t OK, you don’t deserve it, and there is something you can do about it. Teen POWER is a research clinic testing new teen versions of “cognitive behavior therapy” (a talk therapy). Programs are either weekly or monthly and are primarily attended by the teen, although parents attend monthly.
