We offer a Preschool Parenting program with a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist certified in PCIT (Parent Child Interaction Therapy) working with preschool age children 2-7 years of age addressing emotional and behavioral disorders.
Oppositional Defiance Disorder and Conduct Disorder
Disruptive behavior is the most common reason for referral of young children to mental health services. Currently, disruptive behavior can vary from relatively minor infractions, such as talking back, to significant acts of aggression and temper tantrums. Most commonly treated disruptive behavior disorders include ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) and CD (conduct disorder). These disorders may co-occur with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
Our Preschool Parenting uses an EBT (evidenced based treatment) with extensive research to back its effectiveness. Preschool Parenting provides a unique combination of behavioral therapy and parent training to teach more effective discipline techniques and improve the parent-child relationship. Preschool Parenting draws on both attachment and social learning theories to achieve authoritative parenting. The authoritative parenting style has been associated with fewer child behavior problems than alternative parenting styles.
Clarity Counseling Agency offers parenting group sessions at a low cost to assist you in early mental health interventions for the preschool age population.
Consultations are also offered to the preschools in Sacramento and surrounding communities.
Clarity Counseling Agency offers low cost and periodically free "Ages and Stages" screenings providing an accurate, reliable and parent friendly way to screen young children from 1-month to 5-years of age. This screening makes it easy to identify potential developmental delays as early as possible and determine which children need further assessment or on-going monitoring.
