Millward believes that all children are innately good and want to be successful, regardless of what behavior they are displaying in the moment. When a child is engaging in poor behavior that behavior is a sign that the child is struggling and it is a signal to all the adults in that child’s life that they need to come together, support, find solutions and follow through in order to help that child and family be successful. Millward knows that all treatment interventions can be tailored to fit unique situations.
