Therapy can be beneficial to children who are dealing with death,
abandonment, or abuse. Children who are experiencing difficulty
adjusting to moving, starting school or divorce can find emotional
support in therapy. All children, from time to time, exhibit what
adults may call “abnormal behavior.” When a child exhibits the same
abnormal behaviors over a long period of time or when a child
exhibits several abnormal behaviors at once, it’s wise to seek help.
The first step would be to have the child evaluated for a physical
cause to the abnormal behavior. If there’s no indication of a physical
cause or if medical treatment does not eliminate the abnormal
behaviors, therapy should be the next step.
