Behavioral Plans

Often times a behavioral plan is introduced with children and adolescents to instill structure and diffuse power struggles. This is something that (with my guidance) the family designs together with each member having significant input. When children and adolescents feel heard and confident that their concerns are being addressed, they are a lot more invested in the process as well as the outcome.
