Evaluation of the need for help

Sometimes a child or young person asks for therapy.  Many times, however, the thought of therapy comes from adults connected with the young person/child.  It can be difficult as a parent or foster parent to decide when a child/young person needs psychotherapy.  When are the problems so severe that a psychologist must be sought?  Here there can also be a need for help to decide how tohelp the chil/young person move forward.


Sometimes the best help consists in supporting the adults to understand and engage with the child/ young person without the latter going into therapy.
