Children’s Therapy 101 – Everything Parents Need to Know Before their Child’s First Session
When children are referred to therapy, parents often find themselves worried, upset, and feeling a lot of guilt and self-doubt. These emotions are perfectly natural, so first and foremost, we want parents to know that everything will be okay. Children’s therapy is a helpful resource that can benefit young people as they process a difficult experience, manage big or challenging emotions, change unhelpful thinking patterns, adjust harmful behaviors, and tackle any number of other complicated situations that arise. Therapy can also help parents develop the strategies and skills necessary to meet the needs of a child who’s going through a difficult time. In this blog, we answer some of the common questions we hear from the parents of children who are referred to visit us at Lotus Psychology Group.
