The family therapy I do is in situations when a child or teen is acting out. A child or teen might be defiant, or aggressive, or failing in school, or in trouble with the law or abusing substances or lying excessively or acting promiscuously, or some combination of these and other negative behaviors. The family therapy I do is preceded by a thorough and state-of-the art evaluation of both the youth and the youth's system. I then set measurable goals with a family and follow it up with behaviorally oriented family therapy. In this approach, there are specific and structured strategies brought to bear and home, and often and school, to enhance a child or teen's odds of being highly successful.

Each family member has wants and needs, especially for recognition, desire to be noticed, loved and valued. Because each person has his/her own developmental needs, perspective and temperament, often conflict gets in the way of resolving issues. Effective communication and learning how to resolve issues, as they arise, can save years of family hurt and turmoil. Therapy sessions can help to stabilize family relationships and suggest effective patterns of behavior that will lead to a better situation. Family Therapist Harlene Arenberg from Scranton Pennsylvania, (18505), Harlene always available to meet with you for family counseling sessions.
