Could My Child or Teen Benefit From Therapy?

Frequently Asked Questions

While it’s common for children and teens to undergo various developmental phases, sometimes the challenges they face go beyond typical growing pains. Persistent changes in mood, academic performance, social interactions, or sudden shifts in behavior can be indicators of deeper struggles. At CRS, our therapists specialize in deciphering between temporary setbacks and more severe issues, providing guidance and therapeutic support tailored to your child’s unique needs.

At CRS, our therapists utilize evidence-based modalities that are specifically designed for children and teens, such as Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We prioritize creating a safe, comfortable environment where younger clients can express themselves authentically. Our sessions are tailored to be age-appropriate, ensuring that therapeutic techniques align with the developmental stage of your child, providing them with tools and strategies they can understand and apply.

Parental involvement often plays a pivotal role in a child’s therapeutic journey. While some sessions might be individual to foster trust and open communication with the therapist, there are times when parental participation is beneficial. CRS therapists will guide parents on when and how to get involved, ensuring the therapeutic process remains effective. Additionally, we provide parents with resources, strategies, and recommendations to support their child’s progress and well-being at home.

We understand the importance of building trust and maintaining confidentiality in the therapeutic setting, especially with younger clients. At CRS, while ensuring the safety and well-being of your child, we adhere strictly to professional confidentiality standards. However, it’s also essential for parents to be kept in the loop. Thus, with your child’s comfort in mind, our therapists will provide regular updates, discussing general progress and any areas of focus, without divulging specific session details unless necessary.

It’s not uncommon for children or teens to feel unsure or even negative about starting therapy. At CRS, our therapists are trained in building rapport and creating an inviting atmosphere that appeals to younger clients. Through techniques like play therapy or using relatable scenarios, we engage children and teens, gradually alleviating their apprehensions. Additionally, we work closely with parents, offering advice on how to discuss therapy positively and encouragingly at home.

While every child and teen is unique, there are certain signs that might suggest a more pressing need for therapeutic intervention. This includes drastic changes in sleeping or eating habits, withdrawal from friends or family, declining school performance, or talk of self-harm or hopelessness. If any of these symptoms are present, it’s crucial to seek professional guidance promptly. CRS’s team is adept at evaluating and addressing urgent concerns, ensuring your child receives timely and appropriate care.

When working with minors under the age of 15, we require consent from all parties holding medical decision-making (if joint). If one parent/guardian is the sole medical decision-maker, we require legal documentation of this, and/or parent attestation of those rights.
