Mental Health Moment 26: It was Therapeutic! Hello!

On this show we tackle one of the most frequently asked questions to therapists: does my kid need therapy? Claire joins us one again to talk about the most common issues affecting kids and when seeing a therapist might be a good idea. If you find yourself thinking “I don’t know if my kid needs therapy but…” then this episode is a great place to start. We also discuss the importance of parents supporting their kids in therapy and the fallacy that just sending them to therapy once a week will magically fix their problems. Finally we examine kid-friendly therapy modalities, why it looks different than adult therapy, and why it’s a good thing if your kid’s therapy session involves a lot of toys and sand.
