Parent Training

Behavioral training is a critical and effective component of  helping children with disruptive behaviors, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and  oppositional defiant disorder.  It is also a critical component of the treatment of anxiety disorders. Through participation in our parent training program, parents who have a child undergoing treatment at the Weill Cornell Psychiatry Specialty Center find support while learning coping skills, problem-solving strategies, and ways to manage the challenging behaviors of children with these disorders.
