Behavior & Educational Solutions is a child psychology practice that offers individual, group and family therapy in a caring and confidential manner. We use a variety of treatment methods to help our clients, including:
• Lifestyle management
• Making cognitive behavioral changes
• Setting new goals
• Learning how to solve problems
One of the most important ways to resolve problems in families or social groups is by improving verbal and nonverbal communication. While psychotherapy is a primary form of treatment at Behavior & Educational Solutions, it is often combined with other therapies to ensure that patients overcome their problems. Before beginning therapy at our facility, we analyze a client’s issues in order to create an effective treatment plan. Instead of participating in several group-counseling sessions, we might recommend individual therapy instead for a client to achieve a better outcome from the treatment. Alternatively, some clients need to participate in multiple types of therapy to overcome their problems.
Reasons to Seek Group Counseling
In group therapy, a client discusses their problems with unrelated individuals who will also share their experiences. With this therapy, each client learns something from the other clients. An important aspect of these meetings is that clients must maintain confidentiality to protect identities along with what is discussed during the therapeutic sessions. Some of the reasons why clients participate in group therapy include:
• Overcoming a traumatic event – such as a violent crime
• Overcoming grief – coping with the death of a loved one
• Overcoming addiction – avoiding drug or alcohol use
• Overcoming anger – learning how to cope with anger issues
• Overcoming stress – understanding how to manage stress
Each group therapy session at our facility is supervised by a trained counselor or psychiatrist.
What Is Family Therapy?
Family therapy is appropriate for parents, children and siblings who need to overcome difficult issues such as infidelity, abuse or addiction. In some cases, a family must learn how to cope with the challenges of caring for an elderly relative with dementia or a child who has experienced a brain injury. Family groups may seek counseling during a crisis such as a marital separation or for everyday problems such as arguing about finances.
The Importance of Individual Therapy
Some individuals want to participate in one-on-one therapy sessions to resolve private issues that they do not want to discuss with strangers or relatives. Clients can count on Behavior & Educational Solutions for any type of therapy required.
