Can you work with my son/daughter if my ex-wife doesn't want him/her to see a psychologist?
It is best if both parents are in agreement regarding the psychological treatment of their child or teen. In order for a psychologist to work with a minor, written permission from all parties who are legally responsible for that minor must be obtained. If there is a shared parenting agreement, both parents must provide their written consent in order for treatment to begin, unless the parenting agreement stipulates otherwise.
What if my child/teenager doesn't want to see a psychologist?
It is common for many children and teenagers to be reluctant about seeing a psychologist. Take his/her reluctance as an opportunity to empathize and validate his/her feelings about it. Then, it is important to be positive and frame psychotherapy as an opportunity to understand and solve their difficulties. Be sure to emphasize that there is nothing wrong or defective about him/her and that it is your job to help them get the help they need to feel happy, healthy and to thrive. Once therapy has begun, most children and teens enjoy coming in, and are glad to begin to feel better or develop new skills for coping with whatever challenges they are facing.
