Psychotherapy is a treatment used for depression in teenagers. This process is highly based on the confidence of relationship between a patient and therapist. What makes psychotherapy chosen by most depressed teens is the ability to speak to a trusting adult and knowing the person is fully listening to their thoughts and feelings.
Some of the positive aspects of psychotherapy are:
• Feedback is provided
• The teen can speak openly to talk out their feelings in a safe environment
• The therapist serves as a guide to the emotions the teen is feeling
Sessions last 45-50 minutes and the teen sees the therapists one to two times per week.
