There are many factors that cause children/youth to act out and present problematic behaviours that are concerning to parents and teachers. Some of these include:
Children may not understand how to express their emotions in a healthy manner yet, and may use acting out behaviours instead of words to express their emotions.
I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as treatment for children and youth who are experiencing anxiety and struggle with stress or depression. My aim is to help children move from irrational ways of thinking to more positive and effective ways of thinking and feeling. I will provide them with practical tools for managing their anxiety and help them regulate their behaviours. I work on refuting irrational thoughts, stress management techniques, coping skills and relaxation strategies to help enhance the social-emotional well being of children and youth.
