DBT for Children

 
DBT for children (DBT-C) was developed to address treatment needs of children and adolescents dealing with high emotional sensitivity and impulsive emotional behavior. These children experience emotions on a different level, and much stronger than their peers. Little things irritate them, and emotions may be so overwhelming that verbal or physical aggression occurs. The main goals of DBT-C are to teach these children adaptive coping skills and effective problem-solving and to teach their parents how to reinforce effective behaviors at home.
 
For any further questions, please contact our DBT-C clinicians: Ashlyn Ayres Ellington, Michelle Manne, and Katie Watts Renell. For a complete description of our DBT-C Program, please visit Our DBT-C Page. We are excited about the changes happening for children, adolescents, parents, and families through this new program!

Brave Parenting

 
Brave Parenting is a parenting course for parents of explosive, inflexible, or hyperactive children and adolescents. Being a challenge to parent, these children can leave you frustrated by the lack of change in the face of traditional parenting styles, often taking their toll on the family system as a whole. The objective of this course is to equip parents with the necessary skills to promote change within their children when their children lack the skills to respond to traditional parenting techniques.

Peachtree DBT Biofeedback
 
Biofeedback can help you become more mindful of your body in order to provide relief to a variety of concerns including: Stress, anxiety, ADHD, chronic pain, sleep difficulties, migraines and high blood pressure. This scientifically proven mind-body technique uses sensors to monitor physiological arousal, such as heart rate variability or muscle tension, while teaching relaxation skills, allowing you to see positive effects in real time.


 

Trauma & Anxiety

Peachtree DBT Trauma and Anxiety
 
When people experience a traumatic or disturbing event they may experience different symptoms such as disturbed sleep, nightmares, irritability or depression. In many cases these symptoms decrease steadily in the weeks following. For others, these feelings become ever more intense and continue for months or even years.
 
For people who have struggled with the aftermath of a traumatic event we offer two highly effective evidence based treatment options in a supportive, caring environment– Prolonged Exposure therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy. Both of these treatments have been clinically proven to reduce (and even eliminate) PTSD symptoms and clients maintain these gains over an extended period of time after treatment has been completed.
