Child and adolescent individual therapy applies techniques and methods to help kids who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions or behavior. Although there are different types of therapy, most rely on communications as the basic tool for bringing about change in a child’s feelings and behaviors. Individual therapy will involve an individual child or adolescent and also typically involves primary caregivers to the extent necessary. Playing, drawing, building, and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways children and adolescents share their feelings and resolve problems.
