Eliot P Kaplan, PhD, LCSW, CAS specializes in the treatment of anger related behavior in children and teens - without the use of medication. He has over 25 years of experience working with families and individuals.
He uses a short-term model that is 'results' oriented and addresses core issues even in the first session.
Dr. Kaplan is successful with children and teens who exhibit the following: Constant anger and 'back talk', Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), defiant behavior, lying and stealing, cutting school, hanging with the 'wrong crowd', threatening and violent behaviors, as well as other problematic issues. Please note that children who have been adopted (even at a very young age) are often prone to develop these type of symptoms.
Dr. Kaplan is a leading expert in the theory and practice of paradox psychology. He is the founder and director of the ‘The Paradox Psychology Institute' (www.ParadoxPsychology.com).
The advantage of the paradoxical method is that treatment is both rapid and long lasting. Research has shown this method to be particularly effective for individuals who are considered 'resistant' or 'hard-to-treat'. In surprising fashion, this approach has been shown to be helpful even with those who have minimal desire or intention to change.
For those who are not satisfied with their progress in previous therapies (CBT, behavioral, psychodynamic,etc.), Dr. Kaplan's approach offers a viable treatment alternative.
Since each person has a unique set of issues, Dr. Kaplan encourages you to call for a consultation to see if his services are right for you.
