What are parenting services?

Parenting services may include parenting therapy or Parent Management Training.  Dr. Zand will collaborate with you to determine which may be best for you.

 

Parenting therapy helps parents identify, address, and manage their own past or present experiences that may be affecting the way they relate to their child. In some cases, parenting therapy may also help parents better communicate between each other to maintain a cohesive and structured parenting approach. Parenting therapy provides a judgement-free zone for parents to discuss tough moments in parenting and learn how to better manage these tough moments moving forward. Overall, parenting therapy aims to provide parents with the necessary knowledge, tools, guidance, and support to take care of themselves and their children in the most ideal way possible.  Parenting therapy is provided by Dr. Zand.

Parent Management Training (PMT) focuses on helping parents learn new skills to manage their child's behavior(s).   PMT tends to be brief and structured.  Intervention goals focus on reducing challenging behaviors (e.g., aggression, defiance).  During PMT sessions, parents develop and strengthen their skills to improve their child’s functioning. We are accredited in several evidence PMT's.   PMT is provided by Ms. Donna McNamara.
