Behavioral therapy helps in learning ways to change behaviors. Therapy may focus on things like how to arrange tasks or school work. It may focus on how to watch one’s own behavior and give self-praise or rewards for controlling anger or thinking before acting.
Social skills training can also help one learn new behaviors. In social skills training, the therapist discusses and models how the child can act when playing and working with other children. The child can then practice these skills. Training may also focus on things like how to wait for a turn, share toys, ask for help, or respond to teasing.
Support groups help parents connect with others who have children with ADHD or mood concerns. Sharing stories with others who have similar problems can be powerful.
Psychotherapy works to help improve self-esteem. By talking about upsetting thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The child learns helpful ways of dealing with emotions.
We at International Behavioral Health are not ant-medications. We agree that medication can help in everyday life. However, we acknowledge the medication itself is not magical. Therefore, we encourage a combined treatment approach which includes education, cognitive behavioral therapy, and medication management. International Behavioral Health’s mission is to decrease the over and under diagnosis of childhood disorders as well as minimize the usage of stimulant medications with our youth. In the youth that are properly diagnosed we guarantee that medications.
Before making a decision to treat your child with medication, our qualified providers will complete a thorough assessment of your child and understand his or her individual needs.
