WORKING WITH PARENTS
Experience has taught us that it is rarely possible to provide quality and comprehensive, optimal, professional help and support to children unless we include parents in the treatment procedures. Parents are the most important people in their children's lives, their primary helpers, and children are rarely able to be well if their parents are not. For example, both research and clinical practice show that parental emotional response and their coping after a traumatic event more strongly predict the outcome of treatment for the child than the type and choice of treatment techniques. That is why in our Center we pay great attention to working with parents and providing support in the parental role.
INDIVIDUALLY OR IN GROUPS
Parents have the opportunity to come to counseling together or alone and get a space in which they can talk about the difficulties they are experiencing, either in a relationship with the child or with other parent as well as in the parenting role in general. In addition to individual counseling for parents, we also offer group treatment and work, as it is sometimes very helpful to be aware that they are not alone in their problems, as well as to have an insight into their own behavior that provides feedback which we can get from others in a safe and confidential closed group environment.
