Child and Adolescent therapy is working with young people who maybe struggling with emotional, behavioural or mental health difficulties. This can cover many difficulties such as depression, anxiety, problems with food, self-harm, abuse, violence and anger are some of the few. This approach can integrate both parents and children in sessions, together and or separately. This is to ensure that the therapy is developed as a safe space, for young people, to address feelings, thoughts and emotions.
The therapeutic relationship is developed in a number of different ways, depending on the age of the child or adolescent. This approach allows the child or adolescent to work towards a better understanding of themselves, their patterns of behaviour and their relationships. Another way of working with the child or young person can also involve other members of the family, such as parents, guardians, foster parents, siblings etc. This systemic approach of working is beneficial as it gives the family opportunity to understand and appreciate each other’s needs, build on family strength and ultimately make useful changes in their lives and relationships.
