CBT With Medication: This evidence-based approach is made up of several treatment components, and has demonstrated the BEST support for youth difficulties with anxiety and depression. This approach differs from “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)” in one major way: in addition to receiving CBT, a youth is prescribed psychiatric medication for their symptoms of anxiety or depression.

Communication Skills: Training for youth or parents in how to communicate effectively with each other in order to minimize stress and increase positive interactions. This may include active listening, “I” statements, symbolic communication strategies (e.g., picture exchange communication cards), or basic social exchange (e.g., nodding yes or no).

Enhancing communication skills between you and your child can possibly minimize stress and increase positive interactions. Find out how you can practice effective communication at helpyourkeiki.com/communication-skills-2.
