Psychological Support for Children - Adolescents

What is psychological support

The psychological support for children – adolescents is a specialized form of psychotherapy that aims to improve the well-being of the child or adolescent on psychological, emotional, and social levels.

It is designed to provide psychological support to children and adolescents facing various problems or challenges, such as worries, fears, school or online bullying, emotional difficulties, low self-esteem, learning difficulties, behavioral disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, or any other issue affecting their mental health.

Psychologists specializing in Child Psychology use various approaches and techniques to address children's issues. Some of these approaches include:

  • Play: Often used with young children, play is used as a means of expression and understanding of their emotions and experiences.

  • Open Communication: Provides a safe environment where children can talk about their feelings and concerns and seek solutions.

  • Child’s Drawing: This is a tool used for the assessment and treatment of children, encouraging expression through creative processes and drawing. Children can express themselves in ways that language may not easily allow. This is usually connected to the use of drawings as a means of expression for children who may not express themselves easily with words.

  • Educational Books/Fairytales: Educational books and fairytales designed to enhance children’s learning and development.

  • Behavior Management Strategies: Typically involves developing strategies to manage specific behavioral challenges within and outside the school and family environment.

Psychological support for children and adolescents helps in the development of positive coping strategies and the cultivation of mental resilience.
