Children and Therapy: Let’s Talk

Lesson Details

How do I know if my child needs therapy?  

What is my role in my child’s therapy?  

How do I know if therapy is working?  

Children develop in unique ways and there is a wide range of behaviors that may be normal for a given child. Some children are especially sensitive, others tend toward the more active, even aggressive side. Parents help children cope with negative emotions and learn to regulate their behavior. This is all part of typical child development and the challenges of being a parent At times, children’s difficulties managing their own feelings and their behavior may become more serious or they may last longer than a few weeks. If children are having problems in more than one setting (both at home and at school), if they appear distressed or upset for more than a few weeks, if your efforts to address the problem have not been successful and if their behavior is getting in the way of their normal activities, it may be time to seek guidance from a therapist.   

This class will help you think about how to choose a therapist and what to expect from the therapy experience for your child. You will learn practical ways that you can be helpful to your child and ways you can expect your child’s therapist to help both you and your child. You will learn about the importance of setting realistic goals and how to know if your child and your family are making progress towards those goals. Therapy can make a positive difference for your child and for your relationship, especially when you know how to be an active and positive part of the process.

Who Owns the Problem – Coach Problem Solving Skills

Lesson Details

  • Do you find yourself trying to solve your child's problems?
  • Do you sometimes get into conflict about problems that aren't really yours to solve?
  • Do you wish your child would be more effective at dealing with challenges? 

When you recognize who "owns" a problem, you are able to determine who is responsible for solving a problem. Once you know which problems are yours to solve and which problems are your child's responsibility to solve, life gets a lot easier. We often fall into conflicts when we try to solve our kids' problems. And it is important to raise children who know how to solve problems. When teens perceive that they are problem solvers, they are less likely to use substances, less likely to harm themselves or others and they are all around more competent. This class will help you identify and apply specific strategies that guide your child to become a problem solver starting at any age.
