Why is it easier to get mad than to feel sad?


RFP-C is a short-term therapy for children who are chronically irritable, oppositional, and disruptive.

Research demonstrates that children who participate in RFP-C experience increased emotion regulation, decreased irritability, and fewer episodes of oppositional and disruptive behavior.

RFP-C helps children and caregivers become aware that:

  • Disruptive behavior has meaning

  • Emotions do not have to be overwhelming

  • There are better ways to manage those difficult emotions
