Children between ages 5 and 12 with emotional or behavior problems benefit from group and activity therapies that help develop a positive self-image and healthy social and communication skills. Through behavioral therapy, we help children learn about healthy modes of interaction —including the identification of harmful behaviors. Our mental health programs for children instill positive habits and essential communication skills. We encourage family members to participate in these treatments as well.
