Child and Adolescent Trauma – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Child and Adolescent Trauma: Unfortunately, no matter how we try to protect them, children and adolescents sometimes experience traumatic events. If the child or adolescent does not effectively process and manage this trauma, it can have severely debilitating effects on their level of functioning and overall quality of life. Trauma can range from abuse (emotional, verbal, sexual or physical) to witnessing other traumatic events (eg flood, fire, car accident). Professional help from a trained psychologist can help the young person buffer against the negative effects of trauma and to help them improve their quality of life.

Counselling Approach: In order to achieve therapeutic progress, there needs to be trust developed between the therapist and the client. This is particularly crucial in trauma victims, as their sense of trust has been negatively impacted. By using the therapeutic relationship to provide a positive learning experience, Joey is then able to go deeper to help the child or adolescent work through many of the emotions which have been not properly managed and processed. The aim of therapy is to allow the client to experience a greater confidence in themselves as well as their surroundings; the processing of their emotions being a crucial supporting factor.

Play Therapy – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Play Therapy: Children who experience emotional or psychological distress are often hesitant, unwilling or simply unable to communicate their innermost fears, insecurities or emotions. In my experience, I find that children who attend an appointment with a psychologist seem to assume that they are either meeting with an authority figure (such as a principal or police officer) or a medical physician (such as a dentist or GP). As such, they are nervous, fearful and reserved. Play therapy is an excellent form of therapy as it helps to recreate a safe environment for the child, in which he/she can comfortably “be themselves”.

Counselling Approach: Counselling Strategy – Once in this safe and secure environment, I am then able to observe and understand the underlying dynamics that the child experiences in his relationships with his family and friends. The child is open to a more ‘natural’ inquisition to his/her inner world and true shifts in perception can occur. I am then also able to give feedback to the parent on what intervention or changes are necessary to help the child.
