Sometimes children don’t feel comfortable although parents/care takers and schools are working hard to help them. But still, despite all of the effort some children develop behaviour problems, withdraw themselves, or experience physical problems: being bullied or being the bully, experiencing a divorce, loss or death, rage, tantrums, (performance) anxiety, bad sleepers etc. Integrative child therapy can help to solve these problems.


What is Integrative Child therapy?

Integrative Child Therapy is based on an integrated approach with elements of behaviour therapy, family based therapy, psycho-analysis, counselling, mediation and medical model methods. The sessions focus on the inner strength of the child. Meaning: it is impressive what children can do and handle by developing their awareness and faith in their own strengths and possibilities.

Central to this therapy is the complaint and the ways the child is dealing with it now and will be in the future. Main entry point is that the child is not the problem, but the child has a problem.

Sometimes 5 sessions are enough to raise the self confidence of a child and many of the problems which occur, can be solved by the child itself. During the sessions we will work with different kinds of interventions like: stories, metaphors, visualisations, drawings, stuffed animals, dolls, costumes and toys to get the complaint clear and to solve the problem. Often children show their problem(s) and solution(s) already during the first session. It is the challenge to see this and support the child growing physical awareness and spiritual health, accepting and dealing with emotions and feelings.


Integrating into the classroom

Often one can see differences in the sessions with a child, the next step is a very important one, that a child feels strong enough to act in different environments as well. E.g. during free play time, at home, at a club and of course at school. The classroom environment should provide children with opportunities to accomplish specific skills. The teachers are with the children on a daily basis. By supporting them to learn and develop strategies, we can address the child’s goals throughout the routines of the day. In order for this to occur, communication and collaboration with school/teachers is a significant factor when working with this integrated therapy model.
