Child psychoanalysis is much more intense than child psychotherapy. With the intensity of meeting four or five times a week, changes occur that are just not possible in a less frequent form of treatment. Psychoanalysis can result in not just the reduction in anxiety, depression, or behaviors that may be impulsive or self-defeating but also set a child's life on a different trajectory. Changes occur in both a child’s self-image along with a greater degree of self-understanding. The intensity of meeting four or five times a week over an extended period of time results in deep and lasting changes in personality along with the development of a capacity to grab hold of life and live it to the fullest. A child who has completed a psychoanalysis is not immune to the storms which life might bring but is more prepared to weather them.
