Behavior problems affect 10% to 20% of children and teenagers from all over the world.

The Child Behavior Institute of Miami was created in Florida, USA, to offer psychoeductional knowledge to family members, educators and professionals in child mental health in the metropolitan area of Miami and South Florida.


Our educational programs are designed to professionals who work with education or child mental health such as doctors, psychologists, therapists, school mediators, and family members of children with behavior problems.

“Our teachers and families lack phychoeducational information, curriculum adaptation and basic skills to include students with behavior problems.”
