FAQ'S and More

Here you will find answers to some of our most frequently asked questions 

  • What are evidence-based practices?
    When searching for a mental health provider it is important that people ask specific information about the type of treatment that the provider offers. There are many philosophies on how to reduce psychological symptoms. Some philosphies are based on scientific evidence that indicate the best treatment to reduce symptoms. Evidence-based practices (EBPs) are treatments that are based directly on scientific evidence. Most EBPs have been studied in several large-scale clinical trials, involving thousands of patients and careful comparison of the effects of EBPs versus other types of psychological treatments. The most commonly used evidence-based practice approaches for the treatment of psychological symptoms involve cognitive and behavior therapies.
  • Who benefits from our services?
    We work with children, teens, and adults with various emotional, behavioral, learning and developmental issues. When a client is experiencing difficulties and those difficulties are impacting their home, school, professional, or personal life, help from a professional may be the answer. Additionally, if a client has sought help elsewhere but has not found the specialized help they need, San Diego Therapy Group has highly trained clinicians that can help.
  • My child refuses to come in for therapy, what should I do?
    At San Diego Therapy Group, we do our best to be flexible. If you are unable to convince your child to come in for sessions that's okay. Parents can learn skills and tools to help their child. The treatment can focus on changes that parents can make to their own behavior such as Supportive Parenting for Childhood Emotions (SPACE).
  • My child has other service providers. Do you coordinate care?
    Yes! We strongly believe in consistency across all environments. We will obtain a release of information from you to allow us to communicate with all those involved in the success of your child.
  • If doing group therapy, how do you group people? When do groups meet?
    We group clients based on developmental skill level, cognitive skill level, and age. We take careful consideration when placing clients in groups to ensure the success of the group process. Because of this, prior to being placed in a group, we sometimes require an individual session. This allows us to assess your individual needs and ensure we find an appropriate placement for you. We do our best to schedule groups based on clients' schedules but sometimes flexibility is needed in order to form a group with a sufficient number of clients.
