Children's Program (YIPPEE)
Operated from our Outpatient Office in Matawan, NJ, the Young People's Program (YIPPEE) provides services to children ages 3 to 12 and their families. Most treatment is provided on an individual basis, but specialized children's groups are offered throughout the year, which incorporate a simultaneous parenting component.
- School difficulties
- Parent/Child Conflicts
- Trauma Issues
- Anger Management
- Bereavement Issues
- Adjustment to Life Changes & 9/11
- Individual Counseling
- Play Therapy
- Parent/Guardian Support and Training
- Filial Play Therapy
Working with children effectively requires a creative approach. Through the use of play manipulatives, art materials, puppets, board games and other engaging techniques, the therapist creates an atmosphere of acceptance, where children feel comfortable expressing their feelings.
Parenting Counseling and other ancillary adult services are also available.
