Child analysis, an intensive form of psychotherapy, helps children progress onto the path of normal development. Children who are stalled in their development, who function immaturely or who have regressed may benefit. Children may present with difficulties in learning, friendships, relationships with parents and/or siblings and/or daily functioning. They may experience a variety of behavioral and emotional symptoms including the following:
school and other phobias
sleep, eating or toileting disturbances depression
temper outbursts or emotional withdrawal
Child analysis may also be helpful in helping children cope with their reactions to trauma, parent loss and/or adoption when less intensive forms of psychotherapy have not been successful. An evaluation of the child by a child analyst can determine whether or not child analysis might be beneficial.
