As a parent, you want to do everything in your power to ensure your child’s happiness. However, sometimes children with behavioral issues can be stressful to deal with. Whether they’re being disruptive in school or acting out at home after a recent divorce, you may feel powerless in your attempts to help them. The clinical professionals at A Fresh Start Therapy can intervene with comprehensive therapeutic techniques that get to the bottom of your child’s behavior.
Going Through a Divorce
By itself, going through a divorce can be stressful. However, the process becomes even more difficult when you add kids to the equation. They may act out in attention-seeking ways, or they may even blame themselves for the divorce. Using various therapeutic approaches like play therapy or trauma therapy, our empathetic professionals can promote better ways for children to express themselves.
Problems in School
If your child is being disruptive in school or struggling academically, it may be a sign of a deeper, underlying problem. In many cases, children suffer from undiagnosed ADHD. Effective behavioral therapy for children can teach better coping techniques and strategies for staying on task.
Changing Family Dynamics
A new family addition, parental job loss or death can impact a child’s life tremendously. These events can generate a range of emotions, including fear, anxiety and depression. With their brains still in development, they may not possess the coping mechanisms to deal with change. We offer individual behavioral therapy for children that encourages them to open up and discuss their issues in a non-judgmental atmosphere.
