Group & Family Therapy

Group & Family Therapy

Family therapy or family counseling is a form of treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members. The assumption of this type of therapy is that problems cannot be successfully addressed or solved without understanding the dynamics of the group.

Individual Therapy

Individual Talk Therapy

Individual psychotherapy, also known as “talk therapy,” is when a person speaks with a trained therapist in a safe and confidential environment to explore and understand feelings and behaviors and gain coping skills.

During individual talk therapy sessions, the conversation is often led by the therapist and can touch on topics such as past or current problems, experiences, thoughts, feelings or relationships experienced by the person while the therapist helps make connections and provide insight. Studies have found individual psychotherapy to be effective at improving symptoms in a wide array of mental illnesses, making it both a popular and versatile treatment. It can also be used for families, couples or groups. Best practice for treating many mental health conditions includes a combination of medication and therapy.

Parent Effectiveness Training

Parent Effectiveness Training

Parenting a child or teen with special needs is one of the most demanding challenges that any family could face. Mind and Motion Parent Effectiveness Training teaches pivotal techniques to help address these challenges and improve interactions with children. Sessions are scheduled individually with parents and will address the following issues: Natural consequences, Appropriate expectations, Time Out or other consequences, Meeting the emotional needs of your child/teen, How parents give away their power, How parents get their buttons pushed, and Appropriate restrictions for a given behavior. The purpose of parent training is to teach behavioral strategies and interventions that can be used at home, with siblings, at school, with friends, and in various settings where children tend to have difficulties. Parents will be asked to participate in sessions, role-play, complete various assignments, and rate their child’s success with each skill. Furthermore, parents will be involved with practicing reciprocal skills with their children. Topics for these sessions include, but are not limited to: using descriptive statements, direct commands, labeled rewards, and other effective strategies for behavior management.

Play Oriented Therapy

Play Oriented Therapy

Play Oriented therapy is a form of treatment that  encourages children  to  express their emotions, improve their communication, and solve problems. Play therapy focuses on children’s natural ability to express their feelings and resolve conflicts through play. Our therapists use various media, including storytelling, puppet play, drama, music, dance, sand play, painting and drawing, and board games. Play- Oriented Therapy is most appropriate for children ages 4-12 years of age, or with families with children that age.
