Beginning in early February, Therapeutic Options will be hosting a series of workshops at our office for parents and community members, facilitated by our own Dr. Mark Pesner.
These presentations will illustrate some of the neurological and behavioral areas we commonly work with at Therapeutic Options, and will also touch upon ways to manage some of these issues. Details of the talks are laid out below.
If you are interested in attending any of the workshops, please RSVP by contacting us at or calling us at 973.276.9040, ext 11. Space is limited so please let us know soon!

For the past ten years, Therapeutic Options has been using Neurofeedback (brain-wave biofeedback) to help both children and adults. Since brainwaves are associated with feelings and behaviors, we have found that training those brainwaves into different patterns has been beneficial to many of our clients with different diagnoses. Please join Dr. Mark Pesner as he describes how Neurofeedback works and shares vignettes of whom it has helped and in what ways.

Executive functions are those skills that allow us to execute tasks, such as attending, planning, prioritizing and producing. These are the cornerstone of success in the social, academic and behavioral realms – and individuals with diagnoses such as autism spectrum, attention deficit or oppositional disorders invariably have difficulties in these areas. Dr. Mark Pesner will describe the many executive functions, what happens when they don’t function properly, and different interventions to designed to improve them.

Behavior Problems at Home: An Interactive Workshop

Many children have trouble controlling themselves at home. Behaviors such as oppositionalism, inattention, homework refusal, argumentativeness, sleep problems, etc. can cause disruptions to family life, strife between parents, sibling anger and ineffective strategies to deal with those behaviors. Please join Dr. Mark Pesner to share your experiences, develop a better understanding of your child’s behaviors and to learn new, more effective strategies to change your child’s behaviors.
