Are You Struggling With Behavioral Issues?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Behavioral Issues

Behavioral issues are generally first recognized in school-age children. Their behavior may make it difficult for them to learn and grow at school. They also may have trouble getting along with siblings at home or peers on the playground. They may throw tantrums, get in fights, or use illegal substances. Additionally, some behavioral issues stem from trauma in early childhood or an unstable home life.

Available Treatment Options

Therapist interventions vary depending on the specifics of the behavior and the child’s experiences.

Therapy for children or young adults with behavioral problems may include parents or guardians so they can become involved in their child’s healing. Learning to deal with problem behaviors in a calm, fair way is critical to a child’s mental health. Play Therapy may help the child work through their emotions in a safe environment while playing with toys, completing puzzles, and engaging in games with the therapist. Family Therapy can be helpful if distressing family dynamics are causing the child to have more problematic behaviors.
