The goal of child therapy is more than merely achieving an obedient child, the goal is to achieve a cooperative child; a child who actively joins in our mutual goals for the child’s healthy development. The desired result is a child who is happy, respects authority, and who has positive life goals.
Dr. Childress’ approach to child therapy is to work closely with parents to include them as co-therapists in resolving their child’s difficulties. Parents learn a set of communication and relationship-based techniques and approaches that they can use for responding therapeutically to their child’s emotional and behavioral problems.
