Traumatic experiences can hinder development in young children resulting in persistent behavioral and mental health issues that last well into the teen years and even adulthood. This hindered development results in an individual who is less mature than peers of the same age. As such, problematic behavior can result from impulsive decision-making and destructive behavior stemming from a strong need to be in control.
Additionally, teens with an attachment disorder may fail to display an appropriate level of empathy. These problems can lead to abnormal social interactions and difficulty maintaining relationships. Even when a relationship is developed, it may consist of inappropriate emotional and sexual behavior as the teen tries to establish control of the situation.
Prosper’s staff of experienced and skilled clinical providers understands just how painful and frustrating it can be for a family trying to cope with a teenager who exhibits such behaviors. That’s why we offer comprehensive, creative, and compassionate services based on the unique needs of your child, helping him or her to reach their individual goals.
