Parent-Child Interaction Therapy

PCIT is an exceptionally effective treatment backed by 20 years of research. Live coaching is the primary method of caregiver training. Caregivers are coached in specific play therapy and discipline skills by the therapist through an earpiece while the therapist observes the caregiver and child. PCIT can be administered in the home environment or at our office.

Parent Groups

Harbor offers many parenting groups that serve as an important part of your child's treatment plan. These groups educate about specific disorders and provide direction on the best ways to encourage appropriate behaviors. These parenting groups offer the tools to better understand a child with developmental disabilities, delays or disorders.

Psychiatric evaluations are a detailed interview to identify the mental and developmental needs of your child. These evaluations may lead to the use of medication. If medications are prescribed, your child's usage and reactions will be monitored through medication management appointments.

The child psychiatrists and their team can work with your child to assess the situation and perform psychological testing if appropriate.

Our program offers treatment options for a wide range of behavioral issues including, but not limited to:

»    Anger management

»    Depression
»    Eating disorders

Psychological testing is often recommended to answer questions about your child's problems with learning, behavior and attention deficit. Psychological testing also can assess for mood problems such as anxiety and depression, and assess for cognitive problems and developmental delays.
