Emotional problems treatments

Emotional and Behavioral Problems

 Each and every child manages stress and negative emotional impact in a different way, some are easy-going in their responses, but others are much more sensitive. When it comes to emotional problems treatments must always be individualised, adjusted to the child’s temperament and the specific environmental factors.

An emotional and behavioural crisis can be triggered by divorce, bullying, environmental stressors, traumatic experiences, being a victim of violence or even heavy sibling rivalry. When the child has behavioral problems treatments can only be efficient if the family work in unison and manage to create a stable background, built on trust and open communication.

Emotional Problems – Treatments

In the first line of action parents should take steps to provide opportunity for the child to lead a healthy and active lifestyle (varied, balanced diet and physical exercise), based on regularity. Furthermore, an open, non-judgementally supportive attitude is also imperative if we are to put the child at ease. If we feel however, that the child cannot cope with daily tasks and everyday stressors, it is time to turn to a psychologist, who will refer the family to the adequate individual talk therapy or family therapy sessions.

Behavioral Problems – Treatments

Cognitive and behavioral therapy are the best options for children showing deviant behavioral tendencies. Cognitive therapy aims to alter fixed negative reaction patterns in children and teach them how to evaluate themselves and perceive their experiences more objectively, to understand themselves and the mechanisms of the world beyond the level of their own negative impulses.
Behavioral therapy seeks to rewrite negative self-evaluation by reinforcing positive behavior by rewarding. It may be complemented with social-skills training as healing children still may have plenty of difficulties in various social contexts.
