When people gather together great things may come of it. Many people make the mistaken assumption that individual child therapy is the right choice because it focuses on one child at a time rather than diverting any of the attention to the group. That type of thinking may be convoluted for your particular situation!
So, why is group therapy preferable for many children? When do kids seem to be most at ease? Perhaps in the classroom, on the athletic field, in a band or chorus, maybe scouting? By using group therapy, your child will learn and grow from hearing the experiences of others. That is what AA Meetings do for adults.
Dr. Steven Sussman believes in children’s group therapy for many of his patients. If you reside in New York City or New Jersey you and your kid have a friend and compassionate listener in Dr. Sussman. You won’t know until you call for an appointment at his Staten Island or Mountainside office. That number is (908) 217-8106.
