Behavioral Parent Training (BPT) is a program designed for parents of children and teens with ADHD, disruptive and defiant behaviors, and/or emotional dysregulation. BPT teaches parents specified parenting techniques to foster a trusting and respectful relationship with their child. As the parent, you are viewed as the expert of your child. Dr. Hall coaches you through ways to approach, reduce, and manage your child's unexpected or disruptive behaviors. Parents learn strategies to increase their child's prosocial behaviors (e.g., following directions, compliance, skill building), reduce unexpected behaviors, set limits successfully, and promote a supportive parent-child relationship. Dr. Hall individualizes each treatment plan to target your child's behaviors and meet your parenting goals.
Parent Management Training (PMT) is a type of BPT intervention in which parents are taught social learning strategies to facilitate behavioral change in their child or teen. This treatment includes exercises and tasks for parents to modify their communication and interaction patterns with their child at home and in the community. Dr. Hall coaches parents on PMT skills through a combination of role play and providing an educational framework to help parents understand why their child misbehaves. Parents learn about antecedents, behaviors, and consequences and simple strategies to alter this chain of events in order to change their child's behavior. Dr. Hall customizes the treatment plan for your family. Each session builds on the techniques learned and practiced in the previous session.
Child and Adolescent Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a gold-standard treatment used to treat a variety of mental health conditions. It incorporates practical techniques and education to strengthen an individual's cognitive and behavioral awareness and connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. CBT intervention engages each individual in a deeper understanding of why they think what they think, feel what they feel, and do what they do. Dr. Hall uses CBT in treatment to collaborate, support, and guide individuals toward achieving their goals and desires.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is CBT with a mindfulness-based approach. This form of therapy builds on CBT and teaches individuals about the power of their mindset, breath, and mind-body connection. Many people hold tension and tightness in the body due to mental blocks, fatigue, or stress, or may feel disconnected from their body or dissociated from thoughts and feelings arising in the mind. MBCT stimulates your general wellbeing and helps you refocus, regain clarity, and feel empowered. This is a great technique for children, teens, parents, and adults. Dr. Hall weaves MBCT techniques throughout her therapy with children and families.
Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT) is an effective, non-medicated treatment for tics. Clients learn why their tics occur, how to be more aware of their urge to tic, and tips and strategies for reducing the tics. CBIT incorporates mindfulness strategies to empower the client and help them reduce co-occurring symptoms of anxiety and stress. This treatment is beneficial for children and adults with tics. Dr. Hall teams up with the client to support their growing awareness and confidence about their approach to their tic behaviors.
