Jewish Family Service and Children's Center of Clifton-Passaic

Children’s Therapeutic Modalities

Jewish Family and Children’s Services values the input and participation of the parent in every stage of the child’s healing process. Some of the modalities that parents and child may participate in include: Directive Play Therapy, Coping skills Training, Anger Management, Psychoeducation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Social Skills Training, Family therapy, Trauma Informed Therapy.

Some children benefit from individual therapy as a part of their healing plan and these modalities could include Child Centered Play Therapy, Sand Tray and Art Therapy.

Research has shown that when a parent training component is a part of the healing process for the child the therapy is more effective. We therefore provide parents with specialized training on how to help their child reduce symptoms of defiance, impulsivity, aggression, anxiety and other problems in home and school.

We believe in the concept that it takes a village to raise a child and will work with teachers and other helping professionals in the child’s life to help develop a plan for success!
