Family Involvement and Programming

The PCH Treatment Center Family Program specializes in helping families and couples who are experiencing psychological, emotional and relational problems.  In contrast to individual therapy, which is one therapist treating one client, family therapy involves one or more therapists involving multiple people in the therapeutic process (family members, partners, colleagues). The PCH Family Program addresses dysfunctional interpersonal relationships from both sides, giving family members and couples improved communication and coping skills. PCH Psychologists and staff will work to restructure family relationships to improve the quality of life for all parties involved. Read More

At PCH Treatment Center, Clients learn how to reduce their OCD symptoms, deal with intrusive and obsessive thinking, reduce ruminative and repetitive thinking, resist performing mental and behavioral compulsions, and replace avoidance behaviors with healthy behaviors, thus engaging more fully in their lives.
