Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is designed to teach children how to live in the moment, regulate their emotions, and develop healthy ways to cope with stress.

Play Therapy

Children can express more through play than talk therapy. Play therapy supports emotional needs and development, along with cognitive-behavioral coping tools needed to navigate themselves in the world. Our play therapists are trained to monitor a child's behavior during play sessions. Close observation during play enables our therapists to establish a diagnosis and recommend relevant exercises to overcome existing behavioral problems.

Nurtured Heart Approach

The Nurtured Heart Approach is based on the positive impact of praising a child’s behavior and encouraging them to develop self-regulation skills. Children are praised for excellent behavior and told why that behavior is correct. NHA focuses on the way children perceive themselves, their caregivers and the world around them. Children learn to understand that they will receive endless amounts of praise, energy, recognition and reward through the positive behavior they display and this supports children to build a positive portfolio of themselves.

Behavior Modification and Conflict Resolution

Conflict resolution aims to help a child distinguish between positive and negative behavior. This can be accomplished through behavior modification exercises, such as learning, priming & reinforcing.

Biopsychosocial Strength and Needs Assessment

Through this approach, our behavioral health professional’s asses youth child strengths and needs. This allows them to diagnose and address the child’s behavioral plan accordingly.
