At The Emerge Center in Baton Rouge, we’re proud to offer behavior therapy services. Therapy may come in different formats (e.g., individual, group, parent training), depending on the needs of the child and your family. Interventions we can provide include parent training and provision of resources, behavior therapy for your child, as well as consultations for parents, therapists, and educators. These services may last from a couple a weeks to a number of months, depending on your child’s needs.
Our clinic emphasizes a behavioral and/or cognitive-behavioral approach to treatment to address a variety of concerns, including:
- Defiant Behavior
- Disruptive or Destructive Behavior
- Emotion Regulation Difficulties
- Impulse Control Issues
- Noncompliance at home or school
- Picky Eating
- Self-Injurious Behavior
- Sleeping Difficulties
- Social Skill Deficits
- Toileting Difficulties
Our therapists will provide parents and their child with strategies to manage behavior, perform better in school, or improve social skills if needed.
We are not able to treat children for which the primary concern includes: suicidal or homicidal ideation/attempts; grief counseling; severe anxiety or depression; eating disorders; severe inappropriate sexual behavior; medication management; or severe or medically complex feeding difficulties. We are also unable to accept court ordered/related cases or conduct custody evaluations, which need to be completed by a psychologist with specialized training in this area.
