The aim of this type of therapy is to guide children or adolescents through difficulties that they may be experiencing. Talk therapy is used most often with adolescents (even though it may include various different techniques) and play therapy is used with very young children.
The first few sessions usually focuses on establishing rapport (establishing a bond of mutual understanding and trust) with the child or adolescents. Thereafter projection techniques are often used to try to understand the situation from the child / adolescent’s perspective and then therapy methods are employed to help the adolescent / child deal with the difficult situation.
