Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced-based practice that is very successful with both children and adults. CBT is an active, skill-building treatment that allows each individual to learn the skills needed to continue their growth outside of therapy. CBT teaches individuals how to recognize the interaction between their thoughts, emotions and behaviors. This therapeutic modality focuses on identifying and changing faulty thoughts and perceptions that have a negative impact, which subsequently allows for a change in emotions.

CBT has been proven quite effective, with benefits identified for children as young as 3 years old. Compass counselors generally combine CBT techniques for children and adolescents with Therapeutic Play techniques. This allows for the core CBT information to be learned and practiced in a low-stress environment and solidifies the concepts much quicker than without the therapeutic play.

Child Behavioral Therapy
Do you answer “yes” to any of the following questions? 

     • Do you have a child that talks back?
     • Does your child hit siblings, other children, parents or teachers?
     • Has your child's teacher told you that your child is misbehaving & disruptive in class?
     • Does your child have uncontrollable temper tantrums or rages?
     • Are you having trouble at bedtime, with chores, around the dinner table or with potty training?

Compass Wellness Center offers a program that solves your problems! 

A specialized program is available which helps parents make a breakthrough in the most difficult and misbehaving children. We offer clinical care which has been scientifically proven to get rid of aggressive and disruptive behavior in kids.

This method is an evidence-based program to turn around misbehaving and difficult children, developed with over 30 years of research. Rather than focusing on the behavior you don't want, we can help you shape, model and communicate to your child the behavior you do want. We will give you and your child the tools you need to stop temper tantrums, aggressive and other unruly behavior. Children will learn how to solve problems without resorting to violence and other disruptive behavior.
