During the phases of childhood and adolescence a person’s psychological condition is best described as “not yet structured”. This is a result of the fact that a young person is always developing and therefore changing.

Many childhood behaviors are a reflection of parental education or parental conflict. While a teenager’s behavior may appear “extreme”, it may in fact be rather normal related to a given context.

Hence it is fundamental to conduct the treatment of children and adolescents on two different levels:

1.

 

 

2.

Diagnostic level: a diagnosis is developed through psychological tests and interactive sessions. As the child’s and adolescent’s environment is very important, these sessions will involve parents and sometimes even teachers.

 

Therapeutical level: different methods and tools are applied, depending on the type of disorder or problem and on the patient’s personality.

Child therapy will always be accompanied by regular meetings with the parents.

A teenager’s therapy demands more “privacy” to be effective. In this case parents may be involved together with the patient, depending on the situation of the individual case.
