I am a mother of a 15-year-old boy that is experiencing depression and anxiety. I believe much of it stems from abuse from his father when we were married. The abuse started when he was one-year-old, and continues to some degree (mental abuse) through today. He recently stood against his father, which resulted in attorneys and a FOC (Friend of the Court) appointed psychologist. My son has been seeing the psychologist for 10 months now, but with very little progress that I can see. My friends and family think that a different type of therapist, perhaps a behavioral or cognitive behavioral therapist would be more appropriate than a psychologist.

I know all cases are different, and there's much detail that I left out. But if anyone has any advice I'd appreciate it.

Thank you.

What do you have to loose by changing?
If its not working if you are not seeing some progress at this time, then change. Does he have an attachment to this person, how does he language his feelings with this treatment? If he is open , go for it, you can supplement, prior to comlete change, just to get a feel for the situation, as well as a consultation with the other practioners.

There is not much you can do at this time if your son is mandated by the court to see this psychologist. If this is part of his parole,if He is on parole he has to stick with this one until he is released by the psychologist, or his parole time is over.
