Problem Solving Skills Training – PSST

Does your child have difficulty thinking before reacting?
Is he or she impulsive?

Our PSST program helps children to slown down, stop and think, and generate multiple solutions to any given problem.

Your child will learn:

The 5 Problem Solving Steps used to handle any problem situation
To use these problem solving steps for hypothetical problems
To use these problem solving steps for simple problems outside of his or her session
To use these steps to solve challenging hypothetical situations
To ultimately use these steps to solve problems that come up in their own life

Sessions are fun for children as they play variuos games and have the opportunity to earn prizes – always with their therapist keeping your child’s goals in mind.

This program is great for children who are experiencing problems at home or in school. They may experience problems with friends or siblings or handling difficult peers in their life. You will see your child learn to make better decisions for themselves – which will help make their life eaier for them and for you.

Individual treatment; Your child will meet one on one with our staff of certified clinicians who will teach him 5 problem solving steps and how to apply them both to hypothetical and real life problems. We do require a certain amount of sessions with the parent first before beginning with your child so that you will know how to encourage and maintain their growth.

Group Programs (Social Skills Group); Your child will meet with a small group in a structured setting in which they will learn 5 problem solving steps and how to apply them both to hypothetical and real life problems. Groups are held Tuesdays between 4 -5 pm and run for 4 weeks at a time.
