Children and adolescents sometimes experience emotional and behavioral difficulties within their families. We assist parents in helping their children learn to assume personal responsibility for their behavior, develop empathy and compassion for others, and to appreciate and accept the loving guidance of their parents. We share family-strengthening strategies for helping children, adolescents, and their parents to become more harmonious in their family interactions.
We believe that the judicious use of psychotropic drugs is sometimes appropriate as a temporary bridge to help individuals cope with emotional distress. However, we feel these medications are often overused and can have serious side-effects, especially on children’s developing brain and body. With parental support, we work closely withphysicians in helping our clients embrace the challenges of life without psychopharmacological interventions.
