HELP FOR- BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS, ADD OR ADHD

 Dr. Fisher developed a counseling program for kids with moderate to severe behavior problems in 1987 called Identity Psychotherapy. In 1993, he refined the psychotherapy to include kids with ADD or ADHD and changed the name to Positive Esteem Psychotherapy™.

Positive Esteem Psychotherapy™ is a strength based therapy. The program consists of 5-10 individual sessions and 5-10 parenting sessions. Alternatively, you can choose a fast track method that takes two, eight hour days

Important goals:

  • BUILD A POSITIVE IDENTITY and SELF ESTEEM
