Teens feel a tremendous sense of pressure, and parents don’t always have the tools to handle new situations that arise with adolescence. When your child is struggling to deal with complicated issues or emotions, it can make us feel helpless and often scared for their well-being. Many parents are relieved to learn that their influence over their teen remains powerful, and that positive changes can be made.
It can be hard to reach out when things get tough, especially when you hear terms like Oppositional Defiant Disorder, ADD/ADHD and maybe even Conduct Disorder. I focus on creating a non-judgmental and supportive environment for parents so we can partner together for positive change. Using protocols formalized by Alan Kazdin and Systematic Training for Effective Parenting, we create a solution focused plan to help everyone successfully navigate the teen years.
