Parent Consultation & Parent Training
The parents, or other adults living in the home, are the most important people in a child‘s or teen’s life and, therefore, have a significant impact on a child’s functioning. Parent consultation provides parents with knowledge, tools, and strategies to help and support their child. Parent consultation alone or in addition to child or sessions often leads to the greatest improvement in the shortest period of time.
Parent training programs have been found to be extremely effective at addressing behavioral concerns especially during the pre-school and elementary school years. These programs involve meeting for a number of sessions to learn specific strategies that lead to increased compliance. Sessions involve meeting with parents alone and with parents and children together.
