All kids misbehave sometimes but some children and teens face particular challenges that go beyond mischief and rebellion. Understanding that there can be many root causes for these negative patterns of behavior, we are pleased to be able to offer expert diagnosis and treatment to help your child to function better at home and at school. We help families with children (from toddlers to teens) who struggle with mental, physical, emotional and behavioral difficulties.
At Carilion Clinic our pediatric behavioral medicine specialists don’t just offer talk therapy, though we certainly do that – we take a science-based approach to caring for the whole child.
We apply the principles of psychology within the context of other health-related issues that a child may be facing. We evaluate all the factors that may be at play, including depression, anxiety, stress, school troubles and even medical disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, cancer, asthma or diabetes. We provide consultation services to both medical and subspecialty in gastroenterology, pulmonary, hematology/oncology and cardiology.
We work with parents and other caregivers to develop behavior modification/management strategies that will help your child with such behavioral issues as parent-child conflict, disobedience, attention deficit and school-related problems.
