Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) with Dr. Massi

A child with behavior problems immensely impacts the entire family dynamic.  It can add tension to the parents' marriage, increase sibling conflict, and make it difficult to create the relationship you desperately want with your child. 

The good news is there are effective, evidence-based, behavioral treatments that can greatly improve behaviors and shift the entire family dynamic.  Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) helps families struggling with their children's behavior problems (tantrums, oppositionality, defiance, aggression).   Join us as Dr. Massi explains the details of how PCIT works to benefit the entire family.

Gabrielle Massi earned her Psy. D. in child clinical psychology and specializes in behavior problems, ADHD evaluation and treatment, emotional dysregulation, anxiety and autism among others.  She can be contacted at the Center for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Media, Pa.

Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) with Dr. Hornstein

Are you an HSP?  Many highly sensitive people also have ADHD.  Being highly sensitive can be both a blessing and a challenge.  Let's talk about strategies that address the challenges!  While HSP is not a formal diagnosis, we all know when we identify as someone who meets the qualities of sensitivity (or we know someone who does).  Coupled with ADHD, we can find it hard to quiet the distractions and the reactivity that results.  Using tools such as mindfulness, learning to stretch towards flexibility and knowing when to seek comfort can make all the difference.  The ways in which we can add positivity to reduce stress, avoid unnecessary stressors, learn to say no, and set up a safe space for ourselves will be the focus of this meeting.

Dr. Hornstein has been a Licensed Psychologist and counselor for over 30 years.  Earning a doctorate from the Counseling Psychology program at Temple University, she spent many years serving clients in recovery before entering private practice.  She co-founded Hornstein, Platt and Associates and was the Clinical Director, focusing on ensuring therapists provided the most effective treatment possible and matching clients with therapists who would best meet their needs.
