As we are based in Sydney, Australia, all of our interactions with Tracie have been from our home via video conference. This has been both convenient and effective!

We have been using telehealth to train children, families, and professionals from around the world in PMT, PSST, Go Zen, and Coping Cat programs for over 10 years. We started telehealth sessions at Yale Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic. Dr. Kazdin felt it was important to disseminate evidence-based treatments around the world so he studied its effectiveness and found that it is just as effective as in-person treatment.
What is evidence-based treatment and why is it important?
If a type of treatment is considered to be evidence-based that indicates the research has proven it to be effective in treating the problems it was designed to address. .
How long is treatment? Do you have to sign up for a package?
No, there isn't a pacakge or set number of sessions you have to participate it so you can drop out at any time. On average, parents/caregivers are in the training for about 8-10 sessions. Please note that this is just an average so it could be more or less depending on the severity of the behaviors.
How is payment handled?
Session fees are based upon a sliding scale which is dependent upon annual household income. We don't take insurance but we do offer a monthly payment plan option where we keep track of your session fee and charge your credit card to our PayPal business account at the beginning of each month, whatever amount works for you until the balance is paid in full with no interest or fees. Please contact us for more information.
