Care and Support Updates

Updates on the latest clinical offerings from our centers in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

November 30, 2023

Holidays are a great time to celebrate and be among friends and family. However, every year at this time, we are reminded that holidays can also be difficult, especially for people who are lonely or overwhelmed by stress.

Holidays can be fraught for families because expectations of great times can be heightened. For some, holidays can become a moment to reflect on how happy or successful your year has been. And if you have children with emotional or learning challenges, even favorite traditions can turn into tests of stamina and patience.

To help the holidays go more smoothly, I’m sharing some helpful tips to minimize stress and make the holidays more fun and fulfilling.

If you are concerned about your child’s development and would like to schedule an evaluation in New York or San Mateo, please reach out to us today.

Supporting Kids With Big Emotions

When children struggle with big emotions, it can have a negative impact on everyone in the family. The Emotion Detectives Group teaches children emotional awareness and practical strategies for coping with uncomfortable emotions in a variety of situations. In a supportive and fun group environment, kids learn to understand, manage, and face the thoughts, body sensations, and behaviors that contribute to strong emotions.

Visiting Professor Lecture Series: Interventions for Social Problems in Children With ADHD

Please join us for a presentation by Amori Yee Mikami, PhD, professor and the associate head for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia (Canada). Many children with ADHD have difficulties with appropriate social behaviors, which can be a barrier to making and keeping close friendships and being accepted by their peers. In this talk, Dr. Mikami will present reasons why it is challenging for clinicians to address social problems in ADHD. She will then offer some recommendations and tools for how to treat social problems in this population.
