In work with young children, involvement of the parents is critical, as these relationships are the most important in the child’s world.  When emotional or behavioral challenges are present, it impacts the family dynamic and parents and children can be left feeling less connected with seemingly more negative interactions than positive ones.

Through treatment with parents and children together, the family can be supported in strengthening their relationships and changing existing patterns of interacting. Families are supported in building the nurturing, secure relationships that will assist them in better enjoying their time together, increase their ability to understand one another, and reduce problematic behaviors in order to achieve a healthier, happy family.
