Top Techniques and Therapies for Children and Parents

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT

CBT is a goal-oriented, short-term therapy approach with an emphasis on problem solving. It focuses on the concept that our thoughts influence our mood and behavior. CBT is short term with one  session per week (12 altogether).

It is mostly used to treat anxiety and depression,  Sessions begin with a weekly check-in, followed by setting a session for the week. The therapist will then assign homework and summarize the session, giving feedback.

Parent management training (PMT)

PMT trains parents to manage their children’s behavioral problems both at home and in school. In PMT, parent-child interactions are altered in ways to promote prosocial behavior in children and to decrease oppositional or antisocial behavior.

Treatment sessions typically include social learning techniques instruction, where the therapist will provide psychoeducation, models the technique, and coaches the parent on implementing the skill in the home. Parents are also taught how to observe, define, and record their child’s behaviors in order to better understand the problem behaviors. PMT is one of the most extensively studied treatments for children that has been shown to decrease oppositional, aggressive, and antisocial behavior.
