Services and Programs
Child Guidance Center provides evidence-based mental health services, from our flagship Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) program to intensive approaches for addressing the impact of trauma on children and families. We also partner with leading public and private mental health organizations to promote best practices and leverage our collective efforts in supporting the community. More than 80 percent of the children and parents we assist (through 10 or more visits) achieve significant improvement in their mental health and overall well-being.
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – For children who have difficulty concentrating or become easily bored, the center provides a variety of approaches, with or without medication.
- Behavior Management/Social Skills Therapy Groups – This modality focuses on providing children assistance in dealing with social situations, including accurately assessing their environment, recognizing what is expected and knowing appropriate reactions.
- Family Mealtime Coaching – Funded by a grant from Harvard Institute of Coaching, this novel program is modeled after PCIT (see below), helping families dealing with eating difficulties, including overeating and extreme pickiness. Using live-coaching, the program teaches parents positive mealtime communication skills and methods for promoting healthy attitudes toward food.
Note that, in every situation, family members and children are provided confidential and highly professional services. Staff members are also culturally sensitive and multilingual.
