Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C revisits her interview with Dr. Mona Delahooke, a child psychologist, blogger and author who is spreading the message that the behavioral approach to understanding children's behavior is missing two important pieces. In her book and her blog she shares how children's behavior reflects their internal experience and their attempts to get their needs met, including the primary need for safety and attachment and sensory needs.

Mona M. Delahooke, Ph.D. is a clinical child psychologist with a passion for supporting families and children. She has worked widely with multi- disciplinary teams in the area of developmental and emotional differences for over 20 years. She is a senior faculty member of the Profectum Foundation and is a trainer and consultant to schools, public/private agencies and parents. Her blog and award winning book, Beyond Behaviors: Using Brain Science and Compassion to Understand and Solve Children’s Behavioral Challenges explains a new neurodevelopmental approach to childhood challenges for therapists, parents and teachers.
