Child & Adolescent Therapy
What is child and adolescent therapy?
As your children grow, your child will experience changes in their behavior, emotions, and thinking patterns.
They also face a variety of challenges, just like adults do. Their childhood and teenage years can be difficult due to school and peer pressure, bullying, learning difficulties, illness, and change in home situations, such as divorce. During this pivotal developmental stage, there are a variety of factors that can influence their mood and behavior.
As such, these life challenges can cause issues in their developmental path. It can affect their happiness and social interactions with family, as well as at school.
During this stage, it is vitally important that your child, adolescent, or teen can:
- Determine what are the stressors and what causes it
- Identify when they are stressed and know when to ask for help
- Be able to express their emotions and thoughts
- Solve problems and make positive choices for resolution
The goals of child and adolescent therapy are dependent upon the specific need of the child or teen.
Cornerstone Counseling of Palm Beach acknowledges that every child is a unique creation with their own set of experiences. As such, we provide an individualized treatment plan for your child’s care. We focus on supporting your child’s emotional, mental, and behavioral growth as they continue to develop and mature.
We provide a positive environment that promotes trust where your child, adolescent, or teen can feel safe and communicate without judgment.
Our psychotherapy treatment may involve individual therapy with your child or with your family.
