When working with adolescents and children, therapy must be structured differently than that of an adult. Therapy for adolescents and children is designed to assist younger clients in making sense of their feelings and behavior, while being mindful of the client’s developmental age. Approaches such as therapy with play, as well as family therapy, provide both parent and client with the chance of exploring their issues, relationships and voicing their feelings in a supportive environment. Expressive techniques such as play, art, music, and sandtray therapy offer an alternative to traditional talk therapy, empowering teens and children to express themselves through a different medium.
