Parents often wonder how they can better understand a child’s behavior. You may have concerns about the child’s attachment security with you. You may notice subtle behavioral changes due to recent changes in the family, such as divorce, a new sibling, or a loss in the family that you’d like to address.
During a five session Brief Consultation/Attachment Assessment, parents are empowered to gain new insights and practical strategies that can create a more harmonious relationship with their child. Parents will explore the child’s underlying feelings and motives as well as their own behavior in a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere.
How It Works:
Parents discuss their developmental or behavioral questions/concerns.
Sessions 2 and 3:
The child and one parent, then the child and the other parent (if applicable) complete a series of simple tasks designed
to elicit a range of behaviors in the child. The videotaped interaction takes 30-60 minutes for each session.
Sessions 4 and 5:
Feedback is discussed with the parent to highlight positive interactions and strengths, areas for improvement,
and to demonstrate the most effective ways to engage with their child. A written list of recommendations,
strategies, and resources will also be provided, and a formal report may be written for an additional fee.
