Components of Children Programs
Crafting the right approach for our patients means accounting for as many aspects of their wellbeing as possible. To that end, our behavioral health treatment for children incorporates several key components to address issues with emotion, communication, and learning. By bringing together qualified professionals and a patient-first approach to care, we deliver programs that can make a life-changing difference during the course of a child’s life, including:
- Individual and Group Therapy
- Anger and Stress Management
- Enhancing Coping and Social Skills
- Assertiveness Training
- Life Skill Development
- Age-Based Developmental Groups
In each area of treatment, you can expect the highest standard of care and an authentic passion for bettering your child’s experience and behavior. We believe that giving young patients the mental tools to process their feelings in a healthy way empowers them to make progress —often even after they return home.
In addition to traditional mental health counseling for children, we supplement our services with a number of activities designed to foster connection and communication. When children come to us, they can enjoy treatments that focus on versatile ways of relating to their families, pets, and peers. This gives them a strong basis for healthy interactions in the future and can serve to correct problematic behavior by offering an alternative.
By showing children that appropriate behavior can help them meet their needs and express the things they feel effectively, we create a basis for understanding why correct communication and action is valuable —not just something that adults want. Essentially, we aim to assist the children we serve in becoming their own best advocates and adjusting their behavior because they want to, rather than because they are told to. Some of the activities we employ to accomplish this include:
- Expressive Communication Therapies
- Recreational Therapy
- Family Dynamics
