Children. When working with children parents provide some of the most important resources to the work. Therapeutic collaboration looks at the soundness of fit between a child’s temperament and the school and home environments. At this early age the most successful therapy is a strong and constructive bond between parents and their children.
Adolescents. This age group generally prefers one-on-one work, sometimes including peers. In addition to self-discovery, teens and preteens learn the importance of communicating effectively and healthily with family members as an integral part of their burgeoning maturity.
Young Adults. The innovative thinking of young people, as well as the special kind of problems that accompany the coming of age, requires a specialized type of clinical practice. Unlike older and more established adults their struggles and those of the social world bind together in an inexorable knot. Being helpful means combining the best professional training with a flexible and open attitude.
Adults. Active and related communication in a one-on-one relationship characterizes the work for this age group. How do behaviors tune to specific people and places? What triggers symptoms? What types of listening or interventions can change problematic internal patterns? How can the environmental structures that reinforce poorly adapted internal patterns also change?
Walk Therapy. Sometimes it’s best to talk in a quiet room, on a comfortable chair, or even lying on a couch. Sometimes it’s better to go for a walk. Maybe walk therapy is right for you.
Substance Abuse. Co-participation in twelve-step programs is a very good idea. Alternatively, see Andrew Tatarsky’s Integrative Harm Reduction Therapy.
Medication. This is a very personal choice. In conjunction with skilled psychopharmacologists, medication can be enormously useful. So can training and refining regulatory processes through exercise, diet and changed routines.
