Parent Coaching allows an attorney to retain a psychologist to work as a parent consultant within the confines of the legal privileges associated with an attorney and his/her client. The psychologist assists the attorney and his/her client in developing an atmosphere, which allows the parent to meet the psycho-legal challenges associated with the family court process. This service focuses on assisting the parent in working constructively with the attorney. No reports or comments regarding parenting capacity are produced and the psychologist assumes a purely consultative, and not a therapeutic or evaluative role.

Parent Management Training (PMT)
PMT is an evidence-based short-term treatment that teaches parents skills for managing challenging child behaviors (e.g., noncompliance, tantrums, aggression).

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
PCIT is a well-researched and effective short-term treatment for young children with behavioral issues. Caregivers are taught advanced skills for managing challenging behaviors. Caregivers are then coached to use these skills during live interactive sessions with their child. Caregivers learn strategies to help their child accept their limits, comply with directions, respect house rules, and demonstrate appropriate behavior in public.
With consistent attendance and homework completion, PCIT can be completed within 12-20 sessions. Treatment is considered complete when skills are mastered and the child’s behavior at home is rated to be within normal limits on a behavior rating scale.
Proper training is fundamental to delivering effective PCIT. A list of certified PCIT providers can be found here.

School Consultation and Teacher Child Interaction Therapy (TCIT)
A large proportion of a child’s time is spent at school. Ongoing behavioral issues can often negatively impact social and academic progress. A school consultation is aimed at identifying the factors that may be maintaining a child’s behavioral issues at school, developing strategies to improve behavior, and increasing teacher-parent collaboration. Live classroom observations are sometimes used as a mean of collecting invaluable data about your child in his or her classroom.
Teacher-Child Interaction Therapy is a well-researched and effective short-term treatment for teachers of young children with behavioral issues. Teachers are taught strategies aimed at increasing desired behaviors and reducing undesired behaviors (e.g., defiance, talking back, aggression, etc.). Teachers are provided coaching as they master the use of these skills in the classroom. Coaching is focused on a specific child; however, the strategies are effective for managing most students’ behavior.

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment designed to help children, adolescents, and their families in overcoming the negative impact of trauma. TF-CBT is sensitive to the mood and behavioral changes that can often occur in youth after being exposed to a single or multiple traumatic events (e.g., physical and sexual abuse, neglect, exposure to violence, etc.)
Cognitive behavioral strategies are implemented to identify and modify distorted thoughts that lead to depressed and anxious mood and behavioral issues. Family participation with non-offending caregivers presents an opportunity to examine family dynamics and create a system of support that will extend beyond the end of treatment.
