What to Look for in a Child Therapist
You’ve decided to seek out therapy for your child. As a loving parent, you want to feel comfortable with the therapist you choose, knowing that your child is in good hands. What are some things you should look for when finding a therapist for your child?
Things to Look for in a Child Therapist:
When looking for a therapist for your child, it is always good to find out the therapists specialty--both in age range and issues they work with most frequently. Finding someone who specializes in working with children similar in age and concern to your child is an important first step.
Finding a therapist who is not only well-versed, but also compassionate about the work they do is vital. Does the therapist seem interested in the work they do? Is working with children something they are passionate about?
3. Fun spirit
Kids are kids! Therapy with children shouldn’t be like pulling teeth. While work has to be done, more progress can be made when your child is able to have fun in the process.
