CHILD THERAPY TECHNIQUES pdf free download. The emergence of the child as a treatable patient was accomplished over a protracted period of time and through a succession of stages. First came the recognition of the child as a child; in his illuminating biography of
the child through the ages, Aries pointed out that the social identity subsumed under the term “child” was of comparatively recent origin and that for many centuries of Western culture children were regarded as incomplete adults. It was not until the early seventeenth century that childhood was accorded a special status in its own right. The recognition of the child as emotionally disturbed, as opposed to brain damaged or mentally defective,
came much later and can be considered partly a twentieth-century phenomenon. However, it was not until Freud’s 1909 detailed clinical description of a phobia in a five-year-old boy that the intangibles of neurosis were separated from willfulness and naughtiness. With characteristic boldness, he declared that problems of this kind in childhood were “quite
extraordinarily frequent” but were generally “shouted down in the nursery.” With equal audacity he suggested that children suffering from such conditions were treatable in the same sense that adults were treatable, and he then proceeded to the first successful treatment of a neurotic child.
