Finding the Right Approach for Teenagers
RMPS psychologists use their clinical skills to first engage the teenager, then decide whether the best approach to address the issue is traditional talk therapy or other modalities such as expressive arts, sand, or movement.
Neurofeedback, also called EEG biofeedback or neurotherapy, makes use of the brain’s capacity for change to reshape brain networks. This therapy is a research-supported treatment to sharpen attention, relieve anxiety, enhance mood and improve learning and behavior. You and your teen will see their progress, in black and white.
Assessments are a formal way of measuring how well your teen is functioning compared to others in their age group. Families often look for assessments to help address concerns related to school, but assessments can also be used to shed light on behavioural, emotional, or relational problems that are impacting the teen in the home environment or in other settings such as clubs, sports, or with friends.
