Child & Adolescent counseling refers to a variety of techniques and methods used to help children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions or behavior. This type of counseling relies on communications as the basic tool for bringing about change in a person’s feelings and behaviors. Counseling helps children and adolescents in a variety of ways: They receive emotional support, resolve conflicts with people, understand feelings and problems, and try out new solutions to old problems. Goals for counseling may be specific (change in behavior, improved relations with friends or family) or more general (less anxiety, better self-esteem,etc).
