Clinical Support for Children
Types of Therapeutic Support
There is a quote that suggests “each happy family is alike, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way”. Family therapy looks at the family as a system, made of separate parts. While each part functions on its own, the family must function as a whole. Family therapy identifies areas where the system is breaking down in order to restore healthy functioning.
Play is essential for emotional and social development. Play therapy allows children to explore the world around them in ways that foster development of social relationships, emotional regulation, problem solving skills and self-esteem.
Social Skills/Communication Training
This approach uses modeling, structured role play and rehearsal, conflict resolution, and active listening to help shape, teach, grow, and replace and behavior(s) that are influencing and harming social skills for the child. Reinforcement for appropriate communication along with visual or pictorial communication aides are used to help grow communication styles the child uses. Click here to learn more.
