CFATC & I love childhood & honor parenthood! My associates & I are passionate about treating children & adolescents between the ages of 4-18. Clients overcome a variety of childhood challenges including trauma, grief & loss, anxiety, depression, anger & meltdowns, parent-child conflict, separation/divorce, academic challenges, & bullying, etc. We specialize in therapy for neuro-diverse children across diagnoses such as High Functioning Autism, ADHD, & learning differences. Individual therapy works well for a range of issues and our Art of Friendship Social-Coping Program & Camp Pegasus are renowned for social skills therapy.
CFATC offers developmentally appropriate art, play, & verbal individual therapy w/parent support & training. For 4-12 year-olds parents participate in the first 15 minutes of each session, learning coping skills w/your child. Even though parents rarely join in sessions w/ 13-18 year-old clients, we actively work with you to develop supports at home & school.
The Art of Friendship Social-Coping Program offers Mike Fogel's original social/coping skills curriculum, a fun reward system, compassionate social coaching, & an emphasis on self-regulation. We are extremely thoughtful about group placements, making sure that your child is placed with peers with whom s/he can successfully learn & practice vital skills.

Child and Family Art Therapy Center's Groups

* Social Cognition-Focused Social Skills Groups

A traditional social skills group, we teach Theory-of-Mind, perspective-taking, reading social cues, and the hidden rules of socialization. From there, the group works on critical interaction skills such as assertiveness, flexibility, and compromise. The goal is for participants to successfully initiate & sustain developmentally appropriate play or conversation (& discover how to make and keep friends)! A reward system & social coaching is provided in our ultra-positive skills training approach for children under the age of 12. Teen groups often have group parties instead of prizes. Adolescents are eligible to attend weekend social outings in our Connections Social Club.

More about this group

* Frustration,Anger & Problem-Solving Coping Group

This group provides opportunities for children to learn coping skills to remain calm, self-soothe, and prevent temper implosions and explosions. The program begins by defining what anger is from a neurological perspective (taught at the developmental level of the participants). It then teaches CBT inspired coping skills lessons that manage frustration and prevent anger from taking over. Assertiveness and problem-solving skills are taught as preventive methods to further avoid melt-down behaviors. Participants then practice these skills with one another.

More about this group

* Anxiety-Focused Social Skills Groups

These groups help the anxious, excessively shy, or reluctant child learn how to manage feelings in order to join in and sustain successful social interactions. Anxiety triggers an impulse to avoid or withdraw, so participants learn the inner workings of anxiety. Most importantly, the group provides CBT inspired coping skills to take control over anxiety as well as social skills around initiating and sustaining conversation or play
