Through behavior management therapy, your child or teen can find healthier ways to cope with their emotions. The goal is to limit or stop difficult and destructive behaviors. Your counselor not only helps your child progress but also provides the coaching and support you need to achieve a peaceful home life.
Who Can Benefit From Behavior Management Therapy?
We welcome all families who are struggling with their child’s behaviors. Often times, difficult behaviors stem from conditions such as:
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Developmental delays
- Communication delays and disorders
- Food issues
- Learning disabilities
- Deficits with motor skills
- Multi-Systemic Disorder Syndrome
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Pervasive Development Disorder (PDD NOS)
Whether your child has an official diagnosis or you’re not sure what name to give to the difficult behaviors, we can help.
How Does Behavior Management Therapy Work?
Behavioral management therapy helps your child organize their expressions of worry, frustration, sadness, and even joy, appropriately. Behavioral therapy may be used to increase or decrease any behavior. We identify the function underlying your child’s behavior and implement realistic plans to replace negative behaviors with positive ones. We believe it’s important to collaborate closely with all the key players in your child’s life, including school staff, daycare providers, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and other therapists who are a part of your child’s treatment team.
