Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a structured, goal-oriented treatment approach. The underlying theory of CBT is that one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other. CBT focusses on awareness of one’s own thinking patterns in order to change perspectives and behaviors which in turn improves mood and functioning. CBT is an evidenced-based treatment that has been shown to be highly effective in treating anxiety and depression in both children and adults.
Parent training and coaching is geared towards providing caregivers alternative strategies to help break maladaptive family interactions. It is designed to work in harmony with a child's own therapy to create a home environment, which supports newly developed skills and reinforces positive behavioral change. Techniques utilized include: de-escalation, behavioral modification, positive communication, and effective use of consequences.
Group therapy and social skill development through dyads (2 individuals) or group therapy (3+ individuals) offers the experience of learning with and from a peer. As such, interpersonal difficulties and relationships are especially highlighted. The group dynamic often helps people feel supported in a safe, confidential setting where each member can share personal experiences and receive support from others in similar situations. Group therapy is an effective treatment for social skills, anxiety disorders, depression, and learning problem solving techniques.
