ABOUT US

ABOUT

The Boston Child Study Center is a faculty practice dedicated to improving the lives of children, adolescents, young adults, and families through innovative evidence-based cognitive behavioral treatments. Our faculty hold positions at the Boston Child Study Center as well as clinical and academic appointments at top hospitals and universities including Harvard Medical School, The May Institute, McLean Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, and Boston University Center for Anxiety. This diverse breadth of experience allows us to provide expert services in the fields of:

Neuropsychological Assessment
Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
Exposure & Response Prevention (ExRP)
Comprehensive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
Prevention & Treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Mindfulness Training & Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)
Executive Function Skills Training and Learning Services
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT):
PCIT for Disruptive Behaviors
PCIT for Selective Mutism
PCIT for Anxiety Disorders in Young Children
PCIT for Autism Spectrum Disorders

Teacher-Child Interaction Training for Emotion Regulation (TCIT)
Individualized-Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Complex Care:

Sometimes traditional outpatient therapy isn’t enough support or can’t provide support in the situation needed (school, home, etc).
Our specialized treatment programing can be flexibly tailored to a frequency and intensity to match each client’s needs.
The foundation of the treatment plan remains focused on individual CBT or DBT, family therapy/parent coaching, and group therapy.
In addition to these core services, clients may increase the potency of skill acquisition and rate of generalizing skills through the following intensive components:

Individual CBT/DBT Skills Training to increase skill acquisition (1-5x/w)
Individual Exposure Coaching to increase support and exposure gains at school, home or community (1-5x/w)
Executive Function Skills Training and Learning Services to teach organizational, planning, and time management skills, enhance learning strategies, or provide support completing current or make-up academic assignments (1-5x/w)

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to eliminate the many barriers to state of the art assessments and treatments. On average, our patients report seeing upwards of 8-10 providers before reaching our doors. Families frequently struggle to find effective evidence-based mental health services and often see multiple providers without accessing the information, support, or relief they desperately need. Research on anxiety, mood, and behavioral disorders has identified treatments that effectively reduce suffering and help kids return to their childhood. However, the lack of public information about evidence-based treatment and the lack of consistency in mental health services make it increasingly difficult for families to identify effective providers of evidence-based treatment. This causes many families to feel increasingly defeated and negative about mental health services and the prospect of relief.

Our mission is to eliminate barriers to effective treatment by:

  1. Disseminating evidence-based assessment and treatment through comprehensive treatment teams at the individual, group, family, school, and community level.
  2. Increasing access to services through flexible and innovative delivery methods including, in-vivo community exposure therapy, mobile coaching, internet delivered interventions (telehealth), and public education and training of local community and school clinicians.

VIRTUAL TOUR

We are excited to introduce you to our state-of-the-art, 10,000 square foot, center where we hope you feel comfortable making yourself at home. Our center is bright, clean, and warm with comfortable places to relax, read, study, listen to music, or take advantage of a private waiting area.

When you arrive, Emily can help answer any questions you may have and introduce you to our refreshment area when you can help yourself to our healthy beverages and snacks, a cup of tea, or a coffee from our Nespresso bar.

If you’re here for a group or meeting, we hope you enjoy our conference room that feels so much like a living room you’ll find that our conference table converts to a regulation ping pong table. “Giant Jenga” is another great way to relax if the weather doesn’t permit enjoying the great views of Back Bay from our roof deck.

And yes, we have complimentary Wi-Fi available on every floor.
