Childhood is one of the most innocent phases of a person’s life. It is in this phase that we can let ourselves loose and free and do what we like. It is a time when our everyday being is taken care of by our parents or guardians and that we have to do is play a lot of games, eat well, have good sleep and of course study too. But every child is different and hence, children can have different problems too. If your kid has a problem it will affect their health, mentally and physically and hence it is important to address these issues as soon as possible.
The problems they face might be related to something in school, extra-curricular classes or their friends. Some problems might be of bigger scale like sexual assault, violence, abuse by teacher or any parent and so on. That is why schools today see to it that they recruit the best child psychologist who not only provides a non-judgemental ear to the children so that they talk to him or her freely but also helps them carve out a solution to it.
Child therapy is based on the fact that kids learn by doing. In younger kids these activities are playing, drawing and talking. In older ones, therapists focus on sharing activities and ideas so that they develop skills to learn.
Now what really happens in a therapy? Initially, the therapist would want to know and listen what actually the problem is. They would want to listen to the child’s side of the story. Then accordingly, they help chalk out a plan so that the child gets a solution in a well-structured manner.
This plan includes a lot of talking, doing activities that teaches the kid about feelings and coping skills and so on.
