Expulsion/Counseling-Out

Having your child expelled from school can be devasting to the child and the parents concept of their offspring. Both how the child sees themselves and how the parents sees the child can be radically changed by the expulsion. This usually causes a drop in the child's self-esteem, and changes the parents trust in their child and alters their hopes and expectations for their child. However, being expelled from school can be a new beginning and a chance that both child and parent learn how to better understand themselves. Fully processing the events, while gaining a better understanding of the child’s strengths and weaknesses can help the parent and child learn how to best advocate in the educational system. Here we help children and parents through this difficult time with therapy, evaluations and educational guidance.
