Family Challenges

Family-Discord: Can occur when a child's problematic behaviors lead to a destabilizing of the family system. Other destabilizing factors can include (but are not limited to) marital conflict, dysfunction of a spouse, emotional distance, substance abuse, and physical or mental health issues.  

Austin Child Guidance Center provides support to the children and works with parents/caregivers to help them develop adaptive parenting strategies to enhance communication, positive engagement and emotional closeness within the family system. 

Support for Families Experiencing Separation or Divorce: Children and their parents can experience emotional trauma before, during, and after a separation or divorce. Attitudes and behaviors of separating or recently divorced parents may indicate family dysfunction and that can indicate a need for intervention.  

Austin Child Guidance Center provides age-appropriate explanation and counseling for the child and advice and guidance for the parents, which will help reduce the potential negative effects of divorce.  

Support for Blended Families: The process of forming a new, blended family when two people re-marry can be both a rewarding and challenging experience. While parents are likely to approach remarriage and a new family with great joy and expectation, your children or your new spouse’s children may not be nearly as excited and may feel uncertain about the upcoming changes and how they will affect relationships with their natural parents. They may also be worried about living with new stepsiblings, whom they may not know well, or may not even like. 

Austin Child Guidance Center provides age-appropriate explanation and counseling for the children and advice and guidance for the parents, which helps navigate a smooth transition to a well-adjusted blended family.
