Behavioral Parent Training
This approach is used specifically for parents of children who struggle with managing emotional dysregulation, hyperactivity, impulsivity, defiance and oppositional behaviors. This approach would require for Dr. Laura to meet with the parents separately to integrate various skills to increase positive behaviors and decrease negative ones. She then integrates parents in session with the child to engage them and coach them live with the learned strategies. Dr. Laura likes to emphasize the parent-child relationship as the greatest agent in behavioral change.
