Parent Education and Skill Building:
Parent education is always a part when I treat young people. Parents can reinforce the treatment received n counseling and thereby transition the skills out of the counseling environment to the young person’s surroundings – home and school.
I teach parents how to be consistent, alternative means for consequences, understanding why certain behaviors occur, and things parents can do to extinguish unwanted behaviors and influence positive behaviors.
Children can be very different from one another. If you have two or more children, you know what I mean.
