We all know that there are varying degrees of bad behavior
from our children.Sometimes parents and
teachers will encounter a “difficult kid” and worry about whether or not their
behavior is normal.Usually the
worrisome activity is a passing problem, but sometimes the trouble continues to
persist long after it should have passed.As parents we are frustrated and confused…should we take action or just
wait it out hoping it will blow over?Children
do not outgrow emotional problems that have come to the attention of others,
particularly when an experienced teacher has noticed.
Psychoanalysts are highly trained mental health
professionals.They can suggest a
variety of techniques to help parents understand their child’s world.A good doctor will consider each individual
as a unique person.While there is no
blanket answer for aberrant behavior, a new understanding of what is driving
the behavior can often lead to handling the situation differently, and thus
lead to changes.
At this critical time in your child’s life it is important
to seek the council of a professional.The child psychoanalyst that you seek in the Houston area is Dr.
Penelope Hooks.She will help parents
and children understand how the past shapes the present and how it can influence
the future.Call Dr. Hooks today to
discuss your particular situation at (713) 521-9087.Or visit her website at www.pjhooksmd.com.
Psychoalnalysis is helpful for people who are unhappy, but
who function outwardly pretty well.
Psychoanalysis is a term that may sound heavy at first.It is sort of like hearing the word
“diet”.We know that it treats a
problem, but is it something to which we want to subject ourselves?Like any other treatment of the human
condition psychoanalysis has been revised and developed in different directions
over the decades since Sigmund Freud coined the term.
There are several basic principles of psychoanalysis.Among them are:
1. A person’s traits
stem from forgotten incidents from early childhood.
2. Human attitude is
largely ingrained by irrational thoughts rooted in their Unconscious.
3. It is necessary to
bypass psychological resistance to bring the patient to the point of awareness.
4. The conflict
between conscious and unconscious can materialize in the form of emotional
5. It requires
skilled guidance to bring these disturbances from the unconscious to the
6. Once these
unconscious links are made, the disturbance may disappear, and a new sense of
well-being takes its place.
Houston area psychiatrist Dr. Penelope J. Hooks specializes
in psychiatry, psychoanalysis for both adults and children, as well as
relationship issues.It is important to
come to terms with mental health issues just as we would if we had a persistent
physical condition that required a specialist.Please do not hesitate call Dr. Hooks today to make an appointment at
