Child and Family Therapy
My name is Linda Wiskerchen, and I am a licensed clinical social worker with 18 years experience and passion working in the mental health field. I specialize in the treatment of families and young children who are having behavior issues at home, in school, and in the community, with individual, group, and family counseling.
How can I help?
My philosophy when working with children and families:
Incredible Years Small Group Counseling Program:“Dinosaur School” is one of the award-winning child social skills counseling interventions I use that helps build social skills, develops the ability to manage emotions, and practices problem-solving strategies so children can be successful in school and with friends. “Dinosaur School” has been implemented in a small group format with 4-6 children in the Ahwatukee area of Phoenix.
A friendly, elderly dinosaur known as “Dina” teaches the children the rules to success at home and school. They also learn to be caring and gentle with Dina and share their successes each week with her. Children also develop connections within the group and with 2 other puppets named Wally and Tiny Turtle. Wally helps them learn to deal with feelings and use positive solutions. Tiny Turtle helps them to go in their “shells” to calm down. Parents see positive changes in their children and also learn about Dinosaur school themselves so the benefits of the group can be enhanced through the continuation of the lessons.
