should I be looking for? difficult child will be 6 mext month. We have had a behaviorist in our home when he was around 4. We tried "play" therapy for a bit but the appts were at night and he was just too far done by then to have it help. psychiatrist definately wants him in therapy and we agree, but the woman he tried to get us in touch with was unavailable and she recommended someone else. The therapist she recommended was the 1st one husband and I used back when we began this journey. We liked her and at the time difficult child was too young so she worked with-us on tips and techniques to manage him (didn't really help). So we met with her recently and she still seems to be talking about working mostly with-us vs. difficult child. She agrees after all we have been through that this is not a parenting issue, but I need someone to work with-difficult child. Who & what should I be looking for? I mean our goals are basically to reduce temper tantrums, give difficult child tools to try to calm down before exploding. UGH! I mean I really believe the kid should not be exploding and punching me inadvertently in the chest because I asked him to wait a moment before having an ice cream (IMMEDIATELY after dinner).
