Psychotherapy with Children Ages 6 - 12
Children ages 6 - 12 present with unique developmental needs that can impact their ability to regulate there emotions. Basically, that means that sometimes children in this age group can not calm themselves down. This happens for a variety of reasons.
At the Pediatric Behavioral Health Institute we have developed state of the art techniques to help address children in this age group that present with hyperactivity, oppositional behavior, who are argumentative, aggressive, sassy, strong willed, anxious, sad, not making friends, not keeping friends, hurting themselves or hurting other people. We can also help with children who lack discipline, seem unfocused, have a hard time at school, bully people, who are the victims of bulling, forget things, cry easily, or who seem easily frustrated.
Our clinicians address these issues in a variety of manners. Many times the primary caregiver is directly involved in the treatment of the children in order to carry out therapeutic techniques throughout the week while in the home.
