"If your child is going through a difficult time or has had a traumatic experience, he may experience feelings of fear or anxiety. For example, if one of you is sick of you in divorce or if there is a death in the family. In other cases, your child can also contact a child psychologist. For example, if he is having a hard time because he is bullied at school or if he has learning difficulties. This can lead to fear of failure due to a lack of self-confidence. "

When a child is bullied

There are several things a child psychologist can do to help your child when they are bullied. Training social skills in a group, for example. Some children are bullied because they lack those skills. It is also possible to opt for resilience training. Children are taught to stand up for themselves better.
Being bullied for long periods can be a traumatic experience for children. To do something about the fears that your child has developed through the bullying, you can choose EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This is an effective treatment method to deal with unpleasant experiences. Which treatment is best for your species depends on the species itself and the extent to which it has been bullied.

In the absence of self-confidence

Usually, cognitive behavioral therapy is chosen, in which the unreal thoughts of a child are worked on, such as "I am ugly", "nobody likes me", etc. This can be done individually or in group form. The negative self-image is then addressed by naming it, looking at its positive counter-image and the extent to which it exists. It is important with this form of therapy that the negative self-image is unreal, so not really true. If your child thinks himself too fat and he is indeed quite sturdy, only the child psychologist cannot provide a solution. Something has to be done about the child's weight.
