Parents need to watch out for early signs or symptoms of emotional distress, anxiety and depression which may have a negative impact on the welfare of the child. Support from family, friends, school and the neighborhood can permit a child to adjust better and instill a sense of hope.
Some children may have emotional or psychological issues that need to be addressed during and after treatment; treatment often involves psychological education to the family as well. Children often benefit with play therapy and trauma therapy like EMDR(Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing is a nontraditional type of psychotherapy) for resolving their issues. Cognitive-behavioral interventions which teach coping strategies to the child and the family is effective and helps develop a tighter bond between family members ensuring an improved family functioning.
