Child therapy is generally not an easy topic for parents to discuss. Nobody wants their child to need therapy, but unfortunately, there are many difficult and even traumatic issues that children may encounter that a qualified professional can help them deal with.
Although child therapy is usually discussed with a focus on the problems that make therapy a necessity, like abuse, neglect, and trauma, it can have an equally weighted or even more salient focus on the positive.
As you will see, child therapy is perfectly suited to emphasizing positive development while addressing negative issues and symptoms. Therapy sessions can focus on working toward an optimistic future, positive coping methods, and boosting the self-esteem, self-confidence, and other positive states and traits in children.
Whether the child is participating in play therapy, behavioral therapy, or an expressive therapy, it can provide them with opportunities to not only survive after trauma but thrive.
