When a child is presented for treatment barring organic causes, the first question one asks, " Who has the problem?" Is it the child, parents, school or the interactions of all?" After interviewing the child and parents (conducted in both family and individual sessions), I present the parents with an evaluation. Dependent on the severity of the child's problems and the ability of the parents to mobilize their parenting skills, it is decided to address the presenting problems with individual sessions as well as family sessions. My attempt is to minimize the treatment of the child and enable the parents to learn to parent through "Creative Loving" (a program that Dr. PItta created).

The most malleable of us all. Therefore, that segment of our society that can be most easily molded, sculpted. Since the sculptist is almost always the parents their cooperation in the therapy process cannot be emphasized enough. They are makers or breakers of it. That is why the creation of a trusting alliance with them is critical. However, respecting the boundaries and confidentiality too of the child's work (therapy) with myself. The child is allowed to express, within reason, their individuality. Encouragement is given for adaptive risk-taking and self-soothing mechanisms. I create, a safe, predictable, environment.

ADD, ADHD, Autism, LD, TBI, Emotional Dysfunction, severely impact the development of children. As a child psychologist with extensive experience, Dr. Malone recognizes that in such conditions the Brain is not functioning adequately. The Brain can do more than think, it can actually correct and adjust itself when given the opportunity. Before introducing foreign substances into the Brain, please do give the Brain the chance to fix itself. Neurofeedback or EEG Biofeedback works, it facilitates the brain in regulating itself. Allow your child's Brain to avail of its own natural adjustment process. A Brain Map/QEEG provides the information to guide the Brain in its readjustment process.
