After a failed attempt by the parents to get the child to talk with them, an individual or family counselor may be called. However, when even the counselor or therapist is unable to discover the underlying issues causing the child’s withdrawal, other treatment solutions may be necessary.
Typically, when a child is suffering from depression, behavioral or psychological problems, their school work suffers at the same rate. As a matter of fact; a leading indicator of a child’s internal problems are a significant drop in grades and lack of interest in their personal success at school. Depending on how long the problem has been allowed to continue, the teen’s success at moving to the next grade level or graduation, itself, may be in jeopardy. Therefore, finding appropriate help for the teen is a two-part problem – righting their imbalance emotionally and behaviorally; and restoring their good academic standing.
When seeking a therapeutic alternative, Arts Therapy is currently recognized in the behavioral treatment arena as a successful alternative for teens that are unable to communicate their current state of alienation and failure. A program that incorporates individual and group therapy options, Arts therapy for successful communication/resolution of the child’s inner turmoil, and a program of academic excellence in one that guarantees success. All three components are necessary in order to properly restore the child to a healthy ability to engage with family and peers and to successfully function in his or her academic setting.
When a child suffers from depression, often they are unable to attend to the demands associated with maintaining a proper grade point average. For this reason, they slip behind in their studies. Once they lose their educational footing, slipping down the slope to failing grades becomes a clear path. Although parents may become angry with the child’s lack of attention to school; often the teen is incapable of expressing why they are suffering and is also afraid to admit how academically far behind they have become.
Locating a treatment program that is fully committed to high educational standards, along with one that provides a successful therapeutic approach can best serve the needs of the child. Exploring an Arts therapy model, with a well-regarded institution is a solid plan for helping your child succeed.
