Psychotherapy refers to a variety of techniques and methods used to help children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions or behavior.
There are different types of psychotherapy. Psychotherapy may involve an individual child, a group of children, or a family. Each type of psychotherapy relies on communication as the basic tool for bringing about change in a person’s feelings and behavior.
In psychotherapy with children and adolescents, communication involves playing, drawing, building, and pretending, as well as talking, as important means of sharing feelings and resolving problems.
