Services, Programs and Clinics

Clinical Approach

Our interdisciplinary clinical approach includes a thorough diagnostic evaluation as well as the proposal of a treatment plan. Treatment plans are based on current scientific research and reflect the values, needs and resources of the child and family. They often include the following therapeutic approaches: individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, behavioral therapy, parent counseling and medication therapy. Coordination with the child's school is often recommended. The staff of the mental specialty programs and specialty clinics consists of Child Psychiatrists and Child Psychologists and includes both faculty and advanced trainees who are supervised by the faculty.
