The development of children and adolescents is complex and subject to many influences. The changes in the different stages of development are a great challenge.
Mental and social distress can put a strain on children and their families and require psychotherapeutic support.
In psychotherapy for children and adolescents, we regularly work together with the parents. The treatment plan and the goals of the therapy are discussed with them. For children, play and movement are central to the therapy. With adolescents, the focus is on analysing their situation and jointly developing approaches to solutions.
On Children by Khalil Gibran
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.
Development often happens through disruptions ...
... and volcanic eruptions.
By means of creative methods clearance occurs ...
... and masks can be used playfully.
