Greenwich Child and Adolescent Psychiatry utilizes Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT), a highly effective treatment method for anxiety disorders and depression that is backed by extensive scientific research. CBT focuses on helping people changing behavior and develop more positive and adaptive thought processes. Greenwich Child and Adolescent Psychiatry uses CBT with a highly interactive approach that helps patients make gains quickly and maintain positive results over time.
Greenwich Child and Adolescent Psychiatry professionals are highly experienced in treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and more. We work closely with the child, parents and other immediate family members to provide the effective and supportive care needed to achieve excellent results. The majority of eating disorder patients can be cured with state-of-the-art treatment.
Another proven treatment Greenwich Child and Adolescent Psychiatry uses to help adults and adolescents is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT combines several proven therapy techniques with skill-building practices for coping with distress, improving interpersonal skills, emotion regulation and mindful awareness. Research studies have shown that DBT is highly effective in treating:
- Anger problems
- Chaotic relationships
- Depression and thoughts of suicide
- Harmful behaviors (cutting, eating disorders, substance abuse)
- The effects of trauma and abuse
As part of the Greenwich DBT program, Greenwich Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's approach is uniquely effective because treatments are tailored to the specific patient – whether he or she is a child, adolescent, adult, or parent of a child or teen in need.
