Video: Deep Breathing for Kids and Families
Whitney Appleby, Ph.D., licensed psychologist at Cook Children's, shares deep breathing skills for children and families.
Cook Children's psychology department provides therapy and diagnostic testing to children, ages 2 to 18, and behavioral consulting to their families. We engage children and adolescents in environments that are nurturing and developmentally appropriate for their specific needs. Our staff is specifically trained to work with young patients and our psychologists are board certified in child and/or adolescent psychology.
We treat children who are experiencing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning and developmental disabilities, mood disorders, anxiety and other adjustment issues.
Our therapy methods include play therapy, trauma-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and collaborative problem solving.
Our therapists and psychologists work together with you and your child/teen to develop a custom treatment plan to help achieve specific agreed upon results.
