Caregivers often wonder if therapy with children is different from this service with adults. Yes, it is in many ways. Working with children and adolescents typically involves a combination of individual and family sessions, whereas therapy services with adults may be provided solely on an individual basis. Working in isolation with children or adolescents, however, does not tend to readily allow for change and improvement at the family level.
As a parent, you are an important participant in your child’s / adolescent’s therapy process. However, it is also important that your child / adolescent be permitted private time to work with their therapist. This allows for a safe space in which to explore a variety of issues as well as to identify empowering solutions. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us to learn more about services for your child/teen.
