Therapy

Child, Adolescent, and Family Therapy

Although childhood is often referred to as a “carefree” time in one’s life, many children and adolescents face various stressors that can impact their daily functioning. For example, if a child experiences the loss of a loved one or his parents are in the process of a divorce, this child may act out in an aggressive manner or may become overactive. These types of behaviors may lead to negative social consequences in which a child may experience difficult peer relationships. Additionally, this child may suddenly begin to demonstrate academic difficulties. Other children may cope by withdrawing. Children and adolescents are faced with multiple stressors in their environment and therapy allows them to gain the necessary tools to better cope and adjust to those stressors.

Depending on the client’s needs, an integration of child/adolescent individual therapy with family therapy is provided. In order for therapy to be effective, the family should be involved in developing a plan for treatment and maintaining the interventions. If necessary, parent coaching may be utilized in order to increase effective communication within a family. For specific difficulties such as anxiety, specific phobias, and depression, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is integrated in the work that is done individually and within the family.

Following is a list of common difficulties that children, adolescents, and their families face which can be addressed in therapy.
