What Is Child Psychotherapy?

Your child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health and it’s crucial that they’re getting all the care that they need. When children are dealing with emotional issues, it’s important that they have a healthy outlet to deal with these issues and find ways to treat them. Psychiatrists have special ways to help children process their feelings when they’re too young to understand them or properly talk about them. Dr. Renee Clauselle and Dr. Francyne Zeltser at Child and Family Psychology in Franklin Square, NY, can explain what child psychotherapy is and how it can help your child.

All About Child Psychotherapy

It can be difficult for children to process complex emotions on their own and they may need help from a professional. Child psychotherapy from our child’s psychiatrist in Franklin Square, NY, can help your child work through difficult situations and emotions that they may not be able to process otherwise. Our child’s psychiatrist has special methods that can help your child feel comfortable enough to share their feelings and play while working on their emotional health.

During regular psychotherapy, you would just talk through different situations and feelings, but that’s not always possible for children, especially young children. Your psychiatrist will use games, skits, puppets, and traditional therapy to help your child work through different dilemmas. This can help if your child is dealing with trauma, behavioral issues, anxiety, and depression. Psychotherapy gives your child a safe space to process certain things in their life without any bias or fear of judgment from others. This can help your child emotionally develop and create healthy coping mechanisms,
