Author(s):

Abstract:

Purpose: This study is to undertake a complete assessment of existing treatment approaches for adolescents with emotional dysregulation, a common and difficult mental health issue. The research will look into several therapeutic techniques, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness-based therapies, and psychopharmacological approaches.

Methodology: A comprehensive review of the available literature was done, including peer-reviewed publications, and pertinent documents published in the last decade. Review is done related to effectiveness of therapeutic interventions, the challenges and limitations of current treatment plans, the role of family involvement and support, the impact of cultural and contextual factors, and emerging trends and innovations in adolescent mental health treatment.

Findings: Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) emerged as effective treatments for adolescent emotional dysregulation, although mindfulness-based therapies and psychopharmacological methods also showed promise. Common problems include treatment adherence, response rate fluctuation, and resource limits. Family engagement has a substantial impact on treatment results, emphasizing the need of a supportive familial environment. Emerging developments, such as digital interventions, provide potential to improve accessibility and involvement.

Originality/Value: This study offers a thorough overview of the existing landscape of therapy approaches for adolescents with emotional dysregulation. By identifying essential themes and insights, it helps to provide a more nuanced knowledge of effective treatment options and drives future research in adolescent mental health care.
