Children & Teens
Open Mind has specialized psychotherapists that aim at reducing those behavioral, learning and emotional difficulties that interfere significantly with a child's normal functioning.
Many children are referred to us because of anxiety, depression, attention, communication, disruptive or learning disorders, and they are always received with warmth and understanding by our professional team.
Our holistic approach is based in the concept that children (together with the symptom they present) are part of a system (biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic, etc.) so the symptom cannot be explained or treated in isolation.
Based on this concept our approach is on one hand to set our focus on the specific difficulties and establish the desired goals; while on the other hand work with the entire system where that child belongs. We frequently work in learning difficulties, anger management, conflict resolution, self-esteem, assertive communication, fears, and social skills. Our goal is to help children prevent or resolve behavioral or learning challenges and achieve optimal growth and development.
