Two most important issues to consider when dealing with children in therapy are the levels of cognitive development and dependence on parents.

Different techniques are used when dealing with children.More emphasis is given on nonverbal interactions like plays, games, drawings etc. With the increasing age of child, use of verbal techniques are also increased. To have a proper understanding of the issues and the kind of intervention which will best suit the child, the parents must seek advice ofa qualified psychologist.

A detailed case history of the child is taken from the parents, teachers and peers. Based on the problems of the child, the level of development, level of cooperation with the therapist, and the kind of intervention that could benefit the child the most, a proper treatment or management plan is discussed and agreed on. Parents act as co-therapist to facilitate better improvement.

It is very crucial that the child and therapist have a good rapport between them. The therapist makes an effort to make the child feel safe and comfortable so that he may trust the therapist with the treatment.

A major part of child psychotherapy is parents counselling and parent psychoeducation.
