Problematic Behavior: Trouble expressing emotions in an appropriate manner (11 years old)
 
I am working with a client who has trouble expressing his emotions in an appropriate manner.  He appears to manipulate adults in his life to try to avoid dealing with me.  So far I have been able to redirect his manipulations.  
 
I do not want to label him with any psychiatric disorder, so I treat him by holding him to a standard and not bending on set goals, even when others try to excuse his lack of work in his sessions.  So far this approach is working.  He fusses and throws a fit about the work I assign him when he is not in my presence, but the majority of his work is done well when I check it.  
 
It is my opinion that he is merely trying to manipulate his situation to get out of his assignments.
