Is your child displaying signs of negative or defiant behavior?
Some children and teens resolve conflicts through violence and hostility. If your child is struggling at home or school with problem behaviors, you can take steps to help them.
CG&FS offers individual and family counseling to help deal with the issues that are causing the behavior problems. It also identifies the risks, such as exposure to violence, substance abuse in the family, the absence of a parent or a negative peer group.
CG&FS also offers several programs to help you and your child achieve success at home, in school, and in the community. One program is Youth: Excel (Examining Carefully Each Life). This 10-week program for teens teaches anger management, conflict resolution skills, communication, problem solving and goal setting in a supportive group session. Parents attend the Parent Project at Juvenile Court.
A special team helps children who have had Juvenile Court involvement or are considered at risk for it; have been suspended or expelled from school; and have had family relationship difficulties and behavior problems in the community.
