Childhood Concerns

Child Concerns


As children and adolescents grow, they are constantly in the process of developing the social skills and emotional intelligence necessary to lead healthy, happy lives. When children experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their happiness and ability to thrive, they may benefit from meeting with a mental health professional. Clayton Behavioral has therapists who specialize in working with children and parents who are struggling with many different problems including:
 
  • Worry or Anxiety 
  • Avoidance Behaviors 
  • Sad Moods or Depression
  • Isolation 
  • Difficulty in social situations
  • ADHD 
  • Difficulties in school 
  • Lying
  • Defiance
  • TV and electronic addiction
  • Food related problems
  • Disrespectful behavior
  • Whining
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Anger
  • Aggression
  • Temper tantrums
  • Coping with Traumatic Experiences 
Often, individual psychotherapy with family involvement can be helpful for children who are 6-years-old or above. When problems are occurring at a younger age, our therapists are skilled in providing parent-coaching to help parents understand their role in addressing concerns in a developmentally appropriate way that will reduce the likelihood of problems becoming bigger as children grow.
