Early Childhood Anger Management Clinic

 

We understand that parents can feel helpless when dealing with frequent episodes of anger. Our clinic has a proven record of helping families improve the behavior of children under the age of seven who have aggression or anger management problems.

Each family receives a custom plan to improve behavior. In general, we do not prescribe medicines in our clinic. Instead, we teach behavior modification strategies.

Visits last 60 to 90 minutes. All parents and primary caregivers should attend. Your child's relevant medical records should be faxed or mailed to us before your visit.

If you are a parent or guardian:  

  • Contact your child's primary care provider (PCP) and ask them to complete the Physician Consult Form.
  • Once your child's PCP has referred your child, call (615) 936-3050 to schedule an appointment.

If you are a referring provider, visit our Physician Consult Form page to refer your patient.

Play Nicely is a multi-media tool developed by Seth Scholer, M.D. for parents and teachers to develop a behavior management plan for their child with aggression or anger management problems.
