Child Psychotherapy uses as a reference the suffering of the child, in order to help find efficient ways and behaviors to deal with situations that generate emotional suffering, thus improving well-being. To this end, the child’s particular needs are valued using playful resources to address the children’s world and to work on these emotional aspects in a language that is understandable to the child.
Children’s problematic behaviors may be associated with a lack of resources and psychic structure to deal with adverse and difficult situations, such as separation of parents or change of school.
Psychotherapeutic intervention in children can help in a variety of situations, such as:
- Low school achievement;
- Aggressive behavior;
- Nocturnal enuresis;
- Difficulties of interacting with other children or relatives;
