Psychotherapy is a form of psychiatric treatment that involves therapeutic conversations and interactions between a therapist and a child or family. It can help children and families understand and resolve problems, modify behavior, and make positive changes in their lives. There are several types of psychotherapy that involve different approaches, techniques, and interventions. At times, a combination of different psychotherapy approaches may be helpful. In some cases, a combination of medication with psychotherapy may be more effective. Child psychotherapists are tasked with providing nonmedical treatment to children and teenagers with emotional, psychological and mental health issues. The services they provide are similar to those provided by adult psychotherapists, but obviously these guys only work with children and adolescents.

Some people come to therapy with a very specific problem they need to solve and might find that one or two sessions is sufficient. Psychologists can do research, which is a very important contribution academically and clinically, to the profession.
