What Parents Can Expect in Behavior Therapy
What parents can expect in behavior therapy
Parents typically attend 8-16 sessions with a therapist and learn strategies to help their child. Sessions may involve groups or individual families.
- The therapist meets regularly with the family to monitor progress and provide support
- Between sessions, parents practice using the skills they’ve learned from the therapist
After therapy ends, families continue to experience improved behavior and reduced stress.
