Child therapy just sounds so intimidating doesn’t it? There are a hundred and one thoughts flying through your head as a parent. You wonder; where did I go wrong or what is wrong with my child. Honestly, nothing is. It’s all in your head and that is why we need child therapy! To fix what is wrong with the material inside our minds.
Children are delicate and are moulded by their formative years by their social surroundings. How exactly the surroundings have an impact on the child can only be determined through your child’s social behaviour. Child therapy is introduced to those children that find it difficult to cope in the real world. Some children feel anxiety while others may be tuned into a completely different frequency, their skill is away from what they are forced to understand in the mass society.
Behavioural therapy for children comes into play when we put a child into child therapy. The child’s habits and personality traits, fears and insecurities and mental make-up is monitored and through certain talk therapy and cognitive thinking methods that will help the child overcome their problems.
Behavioural therapy for children includes counselling methods that are adopted by therapists that are well suited for their particular age-group. This includes play acting, drawing, painting, expressing, role-play and all kinds of other interactive methods to create a space of comfort for the child. In child therapy, the pillars of the child’s life also come into play. There is the parents, the teachers and the therapist. They create a fortress of comfort for the child and a safe environment where any troublesome situation can be discussed and any weakness can be overcome.
The only way child therapy is 100% effective is when the child willingly participates in this situation and is eased into this situation. A lot of times, parents realise that their child may require a different education system for their child which understands their child’s pace. A lot of kids are saved of humiliation and find a new life path to walk on through child therapy.
