Attachment Theory emphasizes the irreplaceable role of parent child closeness for the health of every domain of child development. Dr. Onufrak believes that strengthened attachment is a central part of a child's improvement in the problems that brought them to therapy.
Behavior Modification does not have to be a mechanical, chart-driven enterprise. Applied in the context of ChildSightTools®, parents learn to be both warm and firm, giving children essential structure and limits, with multiple other self-regulation and emotion-management skills. The behavioral tools of ChildSightTools® are based on the neuroscience of today, not the time-out model of yesterday.
Play Therapy is based on the tenet the Play is the Language of children. Play provides children a way to engage in a non-threatening manner; face problems accompanied by humor and fun with puppets and toys; gain safe-distance from their troubles that allows them to grapple with and overcome them.
