Child & Teen Therapy
Does your child have trouble dealing with their emotions? Is their behavior sometimes disruptive and you are not sure what’s going on? Have they experienced sudden loss or trauma? If they have, the therapists at S & J Wellness specialize in working with kids, tweens, and teens. Our therapists have special training in Teen therapy and Child Therapy.
As they grow, children and adolescents develop social skills and emotional intelligence. This awareness helps them to develop into healthy, happy, and successful individuals. But some children have trouble processing their emotions and this often leads to behavior that negatively impacts their school life, home life, and overall well-being.
Therapy at S & J Wellness offers children and teens a safe space to work through their thoughts and emotions. With the help of a specialized therapist, children can resolve problems, modify behaviors, and make positive and lasting changes. Some of our therapists have special training in TF-CBT which is a treatment modality for trauma in kids.
The following are a few different types of psychotherapy available to children and families. Each offers unique approaches and techniques to bring about positive outcomes. Sometimes a therapist may choose to use just one specific treatment, and other times he or she may find a combination of various treatments is the best approach.
CBT helps children to identify harmful thought patterns. Once a child recognizes that their thoughts create their feelings and moods, they can learn to control themselves and their behavior. Research has shown that CBT is highly effective at treating depression and anxiety as well as helping individuals, including children, deal with traumatic experiences.
ACT helps children and adolescents process their inner emotions. ACT provides context and understanding to emotions that can seem overwhelming. This allows kids to work through emotions and move forward.
Family therapy is great for helping families improve communication so they can resolve issues. Sessions can include the entire family, including children, siblings, parents, and grandparents, or just one or two individuals. Some of our Warrenville and telehealth therapists have special training and certification in working with families.
At every age, children can be faced with life’s challenges. The following are some of the events and scenarios that can impact a child’s mental health and well-being:
Therapy does not fix a child’s behavioral or emotional issues quickly. Instead, it is a thoughtful and comprehensive process that provides children with insights and skills to become masters of their thoughts and feelings. This, in essence, is how children develop into happy, healthy, and successful adults.
