Behavioral Intervention

Behavioral Intervention

Parent Management Training (PMT) is an evidence-based treatment that uses principles of behavior change and applies those to common everyday child-rearing concerns including: general pediatric behavior problems (defiance, oppositionality, noncompliance, aggression), ADHD, ODD, anxiety, depression, mood/emotion regulation issues, OCD, tics and habit disorders, eating difficulties (picky eating, selective eating), pica, toileting issues (general toilet training, enuresis, encopresis), sleep problems, academic and school-related problems, and social problems. In PMT, caregivers work with a clinician to learn how best to work with their children to manage these concerns. PMT may look different from other therapies to help children with mental and behavioral health problems as the therapy primarily consists of the therapist working directly with the adult caregivers, rather than with the child.

Beyond PMT, our team also utilizes the following interventions post a referral from your provider to our psychosocial team:

  • Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
  • RUBI Autism Network Parent Training for Disruptive Behaviors (RUBI PT)
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
