PSB-CBT -Family Model
Children with PSB are children who initiate behaviors involving sexual body parts that are developmentally inappropriate, harmful to themselves or other, and often considered illegal. This model is designed for children ages 7-12. Problematic Sexual Behavior – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is broken down into two models. Today we are highlighting the family model. Clinicians work with the client and caregiver during joint and individual sessions in the family home. This model is strengths-based and teaches children appropriate behaviors, safe decision-making skills and developing healthy relationships. The family is taught sexual behavior rules to follow. Clients are taught coping and self-control skills. Clinicians teach caregivers how to manage child behavior, support healthy development, sex education and abuse prevention. PSB-CBT Family Model is available in Tulsa, Stigler, Muskogee and McAlester areas.
PSB- Group Model
PSB-CBT Group Model is very similar to the family model but is conducted in a group setting with other families that have children with PSB. The groups are broken down into a child group and caregiver group. However, the groups are combined about once a month. The groups are interactive and typically ran by two clinicians per group. Each group ideally involves 4 to 5 families. We have received great feedback from the group model with most caregivers and children reporting they felt supported and “not alone” after attending group sessions. We offer the group model in the Tulsa, McAlester and Stigler offices.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) utilizes eye movement to help reprocess trauma memories. EMDR is successful in treating PTSD, depression, anxiety, grief, and addiction. EMDR begins with the clinician preparing the client mentally and physically. They then work together to identify a memory that is causing distress. Next, they utilize desensitization and break negative emotions associated with identified memory. Then the client works to install a new positive belief in its place. EMDR is effective and studies show clients feeling EMDR work in as little as 3 sessions. EMDR is available in Tulsa, McAlester, Stigler and Muskogee areas.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is an evidence-based therapy for children with behavioral problems. This therapy is conducted through “coaching sessions” where the caregiver and child’s interactions are being observed by the clinician in another room. The caregiver is wearing a “bug in the ear” so they are able to receive in the moment coaching from the clinician to better manage the child’s behavior. This therapy is conducted in two phases. The first phase focuses on establishing warmth in your relationship with your child. Then you learn skills to help children calm and feel secure in their relationship with their caregiver. The second phase will help you manage your child’s challenging behaviors while remaining calm, confident, and consistent in your discipline approaches. Children will learn how to accept limits, comply with directions, accept rules, and appropriate behaviors in public. PCIT is utilized in children ages 2-7 and can be completed in 12-20 sessions. PCIT is offered in our Tulsa and Stigler offices.
rust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention that meets the needs of children who have experienced adversity or trauma. TBRI teaches skills so the caregiver can see the “whole-child” and aid that child in being successful. TBRI focuses on teaching 3 principles. The Empowering Principles address physical needs. Connecting Principles focuses on attachment needs. Finally, Correcting Principles work to disarm fear-based behaviors. Primarily, TBRI teaches the caregiver how to connect to their child. TBRI is offered in McAlester, Stigler, Tulsa and Muskogee areas.
