Child counselors are a subspecialty of a group of professionals who focus on working with individuals, families, and groups experiencing developmental or situational adjustment issues. Child counselors have additional training and practice to better understanding and be competent in techniques for working with the unique developmental needs of children (ages 0–18) and their families. Their work is centered on both prevention and treatment of situational and long-standing problems. Counselors are rooted in development and wellness, helping children and their families to reach their highest potential and well-being.
