Children are faced with unique challenges every day including peer and
parent conflict, adjusting to life after parents divorce, school or learning
difficulties, or in some cases abuse and neglect. They may respond by
withdrawing or acting out. Therapy for children is often a collaborative
approach involving parents, teachers, or other caregivers. Children need
to feel comfortable and may require initial rapport building or play therapy
options. In addition to building the child's "tool box" of coping skills,
parent behavioral training is also offered. This approach helps parents
learn effective discipline strategies, positive parenting skills, improve
insight into the child's thinking and problems, and develop collaborative
problem solving and contingency systems.
