Your therapist will talk with you in order to find the right interventions that will help achieve established behavioral goals. It is important that parents and therapists are on the same page and track the behaviors that you would like to see resolved. Once positive momentum is going and objectives are being achieved, it is likely that the session frequency is lessened until therapy is no longer necessary.
Family & Play Therapy
Your family may want to come all together work on problems as a whole group. During family therapy, your therapist may want to get a history of the problems from each family member individually, or parents first, and then children, to be determined by the therapist. Once the assessment is complete, goals and objectives are determined. Games and other fun interventions are designed to help your family work through the identified issues. Once goals are achieved, the family graduates!
Psychiatric medication management includes a comprehensive evaluation where the identified patient, legal guardian(s), and at times outside sources (e.g. teachers, etc.) provide history and data that is obtained and reviewed. Based on the data provided treatment options are discussed and the goal is to explore least invasive interventions that may include referrals, alternative options, and psychopharmacology.
Neurofeedback, also called neurotherapy, is a type of biofeedback that presents real-time feedback from brain activity in order to reinforce healthy brain function through operant conditioning.
