Psychotherapy is the most efficient known solution for skin picking. At the same time, finding the therapist who knows enough about skin picking is often a challenge. That’s why we created SkinPick for Parents.
Our program is based on proven and effective principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy adapted for children - the most effective form of treatment that we currently have.
As a parent, you will work with our experienced therapists who will help you approach your child and help them apply CBT principles. We help you help your child, helping you bond and understand each other in the process.
Being a parent is stressful. Being a parent of a child struggling with skin picking is something you don’t have to go battle alone.
Our program uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help your child recognize and handle triggers, while introducing healthy alternative habits. CBT is considered the most effective way to treat skin picking among specialists, because it empowers the client to think constructively and find practical solutions.
No two children are alike and every parent is different too. We will assign you to a trained and experienced psychotherapist who will lead you through the program and provide individualized support, because every child deserves a custom tailored approach.
Ours is the only internet-based program geared towards parents and children. This means that you get personalized support delivered to your inbox and you can work on helping your child from the privacy of your home, adjusting the pace to your schedule.
You get to stay in touch with your therapist throughout the week at your convenience and you get the support at the fraction of the price of what traditional face-to-face therapy would cost, thanks to our program based on written correspondence. No need to schedule sessions or visit a therapist's office, all of it is available from any device.
We will guide you every step of the way and help you help your child. In addition, we provide a space to explore your own feelings and find coping strategies that are right for you. A child’s problem necessarily reflects on the parents too, creating a negative feedback loop of guilt and frustration, which is why we hold space for you too.
We understand the personal nature of this program. Special care is taken to secure your information. Anything you share with your therapist is under therapist-client privilege (a confidentiality agreement). You may even remain anonymous if you wish.
Connect with a personal therapist for individualized support. Communication with your therapist is secure and text-based, allowing you to respond whenever is most convenient for you.
We will guide you every step of the way and help you apply principles of CBT through interacting with your child, allowing you to bond and heal at the same time.
In addition to helping your child heal, we provide a space for you to explore and cope with stress that you inevitably have to carry as a parent. A happy and a healthy parent is a good parent.
