JOHNSON CITY, TENN. - ETSU is taking part in a program that gives parents the tools to address their children's behavioral issue.
The program is called "the family checkup."
Mental health professionals identify a child's behavioral issues. They give parents the skills to help their kids through these issues.
Doctor Jodi Palaha says the program works. "It's a one to two session interaction with the family so it's not a long haul, it doesn't require many, many weeks of therapy." says Palaha. "It's really based on the parents interest and motivation as well a good assessment of what there strengths and weaknesses are."
ETSU hopes the system will work even better with the primary care physician since the family is comfortable with them.
