In today’s episode, Dr. Ellen Braaten, psychologist and associate director of the Clay Center, joins co-hosts Beresin and Schlozman to address common questions parents have when they notice changes or differences in their kids’ behavior: Is this typical? Does my child need to see a professional?

In this discussion, we navigate these questions together – how to assess and make decisions about what’s ordinary and not, and when to intervene – through a composite look at the many families the team has worked with over the years.

Thank you for joining us in this journey and conversation. We look forward to hearing from you!
