When does therapy make sense?
There are many causes and triggers which can influence children and adolescents in their behavior. In these situations, therapy can help:
Aggressive and refusing behavior
Anxiety and sadness
Withdrawal and motivation problems
Family stress situations
Moving, changing schools or dropping out
School difficulties, learning blocks or test anxiety
Learning problems or concentration difficulties
Divorce or separation of parents
Death or illness of a parent or sibling
What can I do?
Parents should be alert when their children and adolescents show or even talk about changes in behavior. In this case, you can offer your child to go to an expert in child and adolescent psychology. It is often the case that adolescents in particular do not want to talk to their parents about problems because it is uncomfortable or even annoying for them. Especially in such cases, you should not press them too hard, "Tell me what's going on with you," but rather seek professional help together with them.
