Virtual appointment? One time meds prescribed over the phone to get dc to the appointment?

Work with the kid using trauma trained work instead of behavioral.

We tried virtual. He won't engage.

I don't know enough about traume trained work, but the reason he can't access behavioral is that he's refusing to engage withh any therapy or therapist. Can this be done without that?

The doctor won't prescribe without doscussing the med with dc, who is a teen. Teen won't take it unless he feels included in the process. But doesn't want to engage in the process.

A bribe would work if it was large amounts of money, and possibly still not.

Can you spend time with child without anyone home? That includes a baby.
If you can then you can get him to a place where he might engage with therapist.
