Psychotherapy refers to the use of talk therapy to assess and work through an individual’s thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Adolescent and child psychotherapy specifically refers to the use of talk therapy with young individuals. Often times, children and young adolescents do not have the communication skills, verbal cues, or experience to convey what is going on in their minds. Working with a professional therapist to help young individuals learn how to express their emotions and their mind is important for their self-awareness and growth.
