Children and adolescents sometimes feel misunderstood, devalued, isolated and confused and it is not always easy for them to express their feelings or emotions. Children and adolescents are also faced with several challenges in a society in which it is difficult to maintain a sense of uniqueness and authenticity. Stressors and challenges manifest themselves in the home, at school and within peer relationships and the therapeutic process can provide a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental environment in which a child and/or adolescent can be free to be him/herself and gain tools in order to deal effectively with their stressors and challenges and equip them with healthy coping skills.
