Harbor works to help children be successful in the home, school and neighborhood.
Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment
CPST provides crisis prevention, symptom monitoring, case management and linkage to community resources. CPST also provides parent education and empowers you so that you can learn more about your child’s behavior and develop the skills needed to effectively manage it.
Harbor offers counseling services for a wide variety of concerns that youth and adolescents experience. We also offer linkage to community resources. Just a few of the issues we can help with include:
- Abuse or Neglect
- Impulse Control
- Medication Management
- Oppositional Defiant
- Stress or Anxiety
If you have concerns about the way your child is developing, we have a program that can diagnose and treat developmental delays and other challenges. Our developmental pediatricians and clinical staff have highly-specialized training to address conditions such as ADD, ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s, developmental disabilities, genetic or language disorders, and learning disabilities.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy
PCIT is an exceptionally effective treatment backed by 20 years of research. Live coaching is the primary method of caregiver training. Caregivers are coached in specific play therapy and discipline skills by the therapist through an earpiece while the therapist observes the caregiver and child. PCIT can be administered in the home environment or at our office.
Harbor offers many parenting groups that serve as an important part of your child’s treatment plan. These groups educate about specific disorders and provide direction on the best ways to encourage appropriate behaviors. These parenting groups offer the tools to better understand a child with developmental disabilities, delays or disorders.
Psychiatric Evaluation & Medication Services
Psychiatric evaluations are detailed interviews to identify the mental and developmental needs of your child. These evaluations may lead to the use of medication. If medications are prescribed, your child’s usage and reactions will be monitored through medication management appointments.
Psychological testing is often recommended to answer questions about your child’s problems with learning, behavior and attention deficit. Psychological testing also can assess for mood problems such as anxiety and depression, and assess for cognitive problems and developmental delays. A parent interview appointment will begin your child's psychological testing process.
