Child Therapy for Emotion Regulation—Emotion Regulation Therapy at TherapyLand
Being a kid can be overwhelming. There are rules they don’t understand, bedtimes they don’t like, schoolwork that they don’t want to do, kids that are mean, parents that are unfair. Although it seems as if it would be wonderful to return to childhood, we forget the challenges that we experience as children.
Due to many of these issues and annoyances, children can exhibit temper tantrums, biting, meltdowns, and other emotional outbursts. Some of this is normal, particularly during the toddler years, but as children get older, there are more and more consequences because of these behaviors. The child may be left out of social gatherings, have disciplinary actions at school, and generally ostracize themselves.
Teaching a child to manage their emotions is a wonderful gift you can give as a parent. Thriveworks TherapyLand child therapists are ready to help your child gain control of their outbursts and better regulate their emotions.
Causes of Emotional Outbursts
The root cause of emotional outbursts can be hard to determine. The child may…
- Have delayed maturity
- Be struggling with an underlying disorder or medical issue
- Be reacting to an emotional or physical trauma
Emotional outbursts can also manifest when a child is having trouble communicating effectively. By teaching coping mechanisms and communication skills, the child may be able to express their feelings in a much healthier manner. This will better the child’s life, as well as the parental relationship, and the entire family unit.
