Jan

Jan, 28, is the single mother of a 9-year-old boy, Alex. Jan came to CIP because of her struggles with her son, who she reported was being very hostile, disrespectful, and "out of control."

Her increasing sense of helplessness in disciplining the boy had resulted in mounting conflict. Finally, she had resorted to physical punishment and she was terrified that this would escalate. Jan entered therapy feeling depressed and overwhelmed. Through the course of therapy she has learned to set effective limits with her son in a way that he has been able to hear. Alex, too, has begun therapy at CIP to address the issues that have led to his acting out. As a result, they report many fewer conflicts, and no further use of physical punishment.
