Adolescence represents a significant life transition characterized by questions that can generate psychological and relational difficulties sometimes manifested in behavior or eating disorders. Often, parents are not prepared to cope with those behaviors and phenomena.
The Adolescence Without Problems program helps families to better manage the problems of adolescence. It aims to help adolescents to understand those events and to suggest ways to improve the situation for the benefit of the adolescent and family.
The program is specifically geared toward children and adolescents who suffer or seem to suffer from depression, hyperactivity and attention deficit disorders, anorexia, bulimia, difficulties in school, sleep disorders, and addiction to tobacco, alcohol, or other substances.
The program offers an initial family interview with a psychotherapist who specializes in adolescence and its specific problems. The meeting is an opportunity to evaluate the extent of problems encountered and their origin. Its multifocal analysis is conduct to address several organic, psychic, and social components. The healthcare professional also organizes psychotherapeutic support for the adolescent and his or her parents and affords monitoring and control with the help of the same specialist.
