Hope for Parents and Families of VERY Difficult Kids . . .
Kids with Attachment Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, PTSD and kids who act out to the complete and utter exasperation of their families and foster families . . . this site and the No Broken Kidssm program is designed for these families.
Children and teens with multiple diagnoses , the ones who the system keeps sending back, saying "We've done all we can do" . . . this program is for these families. Families that have tried everything they know, and it's still not working . . . No Broken Kidssm is for you.
No Broken Kidssm is a very specialized training program for the parents and care providers of youths with severe behavioral disorders. Bob Pelosi, the founder of No Broken Kidssm is a therapist with many years experience in helping families to learn new ways to bring their child's behavior under control.
Parents come to my office with long tales of distress, a hundred different approaches to demonstrating that they have a broken kid. They don't always use the word "broken."
Our system teaches us to avoid such words. Instead, we talk about them as having Attention Deficit Disorder or a learning disability or Oppositional Defiant Disorder or Bipolar Disorder or Reactive Attachment Disorder or Conduct Disorder or some other lovely clinical term that allows us to distance from words like "broken kid." But the end result is the same, thousands of parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, grandparents and guardians lovingly drag their kids to thousands of folks like me, all because the kid is broken.
Call it what you will, we all think of them as broken, or disturbed or rageful or angry or depressed or acting-out or some other label that allows parents and loved ones and professionals to cope with the idea that something isn't right about the kid.
Here you will find the answers you've been searching for, the ones that will put you on the right track to finding a solution for the dilemma of the broken kid. Read on, consider participating in one of our workshops and watch for the Bob's upcoming book, "No Broken Kids"sm by Robert A. Pelosi, NCC, LMHC, BCETS.
