Listening defines my approach to your treatment. A major difference in working with a psychoanalyst as opposed to other mental health practitioners is the careful, consistent, deep attention a psychoanalyst gives to listening. Change can occur because the first emphasis of this treatment is understanding, rather than feeling pressured to "do" something. Psychoanalysts develop this skill by engaging in extensive institute training beyond that required for their license. My goal is for you to achieve substantive, durable change through a collaborative approach to understanding the deeper meanings and causes of problems you face.

Every human being has the emotional need to be understood and validated. When this need is met, we can find our true selves and live an authentic life, which brings happiness and satisfaction. However, when this is absent from our lives, we struggle just to survive and we experience pain and suffering. Some of us are fortunate to have people in our lives who try to support and help us, but their comments and feedback are limited by their lack of training as a therapist and by their personal perspectives and values.

Peer Relationships in Brooklyn

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Brooklyn

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Brooklyn

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Brooklyn or for a Brooklyn peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Brooklyn and peer relationship advice.
