Other psychotherapies

Dynamic psychotherapy based on the theories of Sigmund Freud and his daughter Anna Freud,(2) Melanie Klein,(3) and others has been the mainstay of individual child therapy. More recently, Virginia Axline(4) adapted the ideas that Carl Rogers(5) applied to counselling and developed 'play therapy' as a specific technique for children. Subsequently, brief psychotherapy(6) and interpersonal therapy(7) have grown out of the need to update psychodynamic methods. Various forms of cognitive therapy(8) are now increasingly used for children, although they were developed for the treatment of adults. These therapies focus on a problem-solving approach to resolve current issues, rather than on resolving unconscious conflicts based in the past.
