In parent-led therapy, parents learn skills to cope with stress and anxiety which they can then teach to their child. The child does not need to directly speak with the therapist.
Over six weekly 60 minute sessions through Zoom or phone, our trained therapists will provide one-on-one therapy to parents, covering how to address their child’s anxiety and depressive symptoms, emotionally support their child during the pandemic, and help their child develop effective coping skills. Parents will learn cognitive behavioral techniques to teach their child, such as identifying emotions, improving emotion regulation, and developing adaptive coping thoughts and behaviors. In each session, therapists will provide homework assignments and handouts, videos, and resources on CBT. Therapists will guide parents to practice these learned cognitive-behavioral techniques with their child outside of the parent-therapists sessions.
