Children / Adolescent
When children and adolescents are faced with life stressors, the adverse effects surface through behavioral, social or emotional issues that are difficult to pinpoint. The cause and actual impact on the individual during such sensitive developmental stages are assessed and worked through with the involvement of parents or caregivers.
Significant life events that are overlooked and in most cases rupture the individual’s development include and are not limited to: the death of a family member, friend, or pet; divorce or a move; abuse; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family . Such stressors can cause symptomatic features leading to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social functioning. Behaviors that lead clients into therapy include withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky, or tearful.
