Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Communication: Dealing With Challenging Families In School (Webinar)

Communication with parents can be very challenging. No matter what you may do or say, miscommunication is likely to occur.

What do you do when you are stuck trying to support and understand a difficult parent?

This article will discuss ways to survive and support difficult families.

Communication can be very difficult with challenging families. These families often struggle with behavioral and mental health problems, have low income, are single-parent households, and need a lot of community support.  Teachers and mental health professionals who must work with challenging families need all the support they can get.

In the webinar below, I discuss a variety of ways to protect yourself and put yourself in the best position possible to work peacefully with these families. In addition, I also discuss ways to understand difficult families. It is only when we correctly identify their limitations, weaknesses, and needs that we are able to truly help them.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

As we get closer to the middle of May states across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.

But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.

In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.
