Coming this Fall:

Trauma Recovery for Youth (TRY) – Teen Group
Ally Burr-Harris, Ph.D. and Kayla Hoskins, MS, CSWA
This is a group for teens (13 and older) who have been impacted by trauma including abuse, violence, accidents, medical trauma or traumatic loss. This eight-week group meets every other Monday from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.  It includes psycho-education about the effects of trauma, coping strategies for managing trauma symptoms, planning for trauma reminders, processing of trauma memories and strategies for building resilience. Sessions will include skills-based practice, sharing and support, as well as lighter activities to ensure that we are staying within group members’ tolerance zone. All teens will be screened by the leader beforehand in an individual meeting to ensure that they are a good fit for this type of group therapy.  We also work hard to match group members with similar types and levels of trauma exposure. The group leader may require that the teen also participate in individual therapy to ensure adequate support. Once accepted, all parents/guardians will be asked to first attend a parent meeting. Parents will also be invited to join part of the final session. This group may be covered by insurance if the teen has a diagnosis related to trauma symptoms.  A TRY group for children ages 9 to 12 will be offered in the spring of 2019.

Rose Eagle, Ph.D. and Nichole Sage, Psy.D.

This research-based curriculum is designed to support parents and children ages 4-6 with disruptive behavior including hyperactivity, defiance, impulsivity and tantrums. Parent and child sessions are held in separate rooms simultaneously. Families learn to improve their child’s coping, self-regulation and social skills and decrease negative behaviors at home and/or at school. Sessions are fun, supportive and positive. Families leave with tools for every-day use. An initial consultation ($210, billable to insurance) is required. Group size is limited. Participating families will receive a specialized registration packet to be completed prior to the first session. The cost is $1200 (this includes 12 parent group sessions and 12 child group sessions which occur simultaneously). Both parent and child sessions are billable to health insurance.  Space is limited.

Jennifer Simon-Thomas, Ph.D. 

This is a series of seven parents/student meetings. Does your child struggle to get work done well and on time? Then this is the class for you. This is a hands-on class for middle and high school students, who struggle with time management, work initiation/completion, organization and overall ability to get work done before play. The Seeing My Time program was developed by Marydee Sklar and focuses on making time tangible. We will discuss brain development, the connection between the brain and behavior, as well as offer easy-to-use tools to increase executive functioning skills. This is a seven-week class that builds upon itself. Parents and students participate together. Group size is limited to 8 students. One parent must attend every session. If you are not a current patient at the Children’s Program an initial consultation ($210) is required.  $350 + $40 for workbooks. Sessions are insurance-billable.  A specialized registration packet must be completed once accepted in the group.
