Trauma-Focused and Trauma-Informed Therapies For Children
Trauma-focused and trauma-informed therapies Many child therapists are specially trained to help and guide children to process and heal from the traumatic encounter. Some children may catch trauma problems after experiencing unexpected losses such as the death of a sibling, caregiver and a loved one. Trauma can also develop after a child suffers from neglect and abuse, natural disasters, car accidents, or witnessing violence for example.
Grief counseling- Some kids may need additional support when grieving a loss. A child therapist can help children find and look for healthy ways to show their emotions and to recover from their injuries. Because children in specific developmental stages process and understand death and other losses another way than adults, grief counseling guides children to understand the grieving process. It also gives children the freedom to show their sadness and other emotions without fear of upsetting their parents.
