Temper Tantrum Clinic
The Temper Tantrum Clinic is part of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Center. It serves parents and their children ages five and younger who have severe behavior problems, which we see in their temper tantrums.
Eligibility requirements for the Temper Tantrum Clinic include:
- Your child has tantrums more than twice a day and tantrums last more than five minutes each.
- Your child does not have a cognitive or developmental delay.
- Parents need to commit to six sessions on a weekly basis.
The clinic is staffed by child psychotherapists who use a variety of behavior management techniques in conjunction with child-centered parent guidance. Most families notice improved behavior within six to eight sessions.
Appointments can be scheduled by calling the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Center intake coordinator at (414) 266-3339.
