The Hadden Clinic specializes in treatment of children and adolescents within the context of the whole family. We work with children who have behavioral concerns that can include age-appropriate self-care, school and learning issues, emotional modulation and self-control, and developing and maintaining friendships/relationships.
We help families in dealing with a wide range of issues that can affect the natural course of a child’s personality development, such as divorce, adoption, chronic or serious illness of a parent or sibling, or death of a loved one.
Our therapeutic approach is based on the understanding that children’s troubling behavior always serves a purpose – even if that purpose is not immediately apparent. Everyone has an inner emotional life that impacts how he or she responds to the demands of daily life. As children become more aware of their feelings, they can identify how their behavioral troubles prevent them from having to confront difficult emotions – unlocking the keys to long-term behavioral change.
