Guide to Activities for Child Therapy Sessions

Children in therapy need to feel comfortable with their therapists and feel a sense of trust in them before any treatment can truly be effective. After this trust is established, their therapist or counselor must be able to interact with them in the most effective way possible. For kids, this is often accomplished with the help of fun or interesting activities. These activities are often specific to the problem, which may include issues related to speech, development, anxiety, or anger. Activities used in child therapy or counseling sessions can be ones that are commonly used, or creative therapists may find ways to adapt traditional games into activities that can be used as part of a child’s therapy.
