If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children. | Mahatma Gandhi

The Pathways Institute for Impulse Control offers assessments and treatment for adolescents and children who are exhibiting behaviors associated with impulse control, including: sexual, internet use, anger, stealing, and others.  We also offer psychological and risk assessments for juveniles referred through the legal system.

Out of control behaviors of a youth in the home can cause turmoil and crisis for everyone who lives in that home.  These behaviors can be caused by many things, including trauma, exposure, anxiety, and learning differences.  We work to create a non-judgmental, non-shaming and safe environment so that the origins of these behaviors can be discovered and the youth can learn to talk about their feelings with their caretakers, control their behaviors with the help of others in their environment, and rebuild a safe, trusting relationship with their families and in their home.  In addition to individual and family treatment, we also offer an impulse control group for juveniles.

If successful, intervention and prevention can help a young person move towards a healthier and safer future.
