Therapist Dilemma: What To Do When A Child Falls Asleep In Session
In this episode, I addressed a question from a listener, Kianna in Pennsylvania, who is in an internship and recently inherited a playroom. She’s working with three boys whose parents are going through a divorce, and one of the boys has been falling asleep during the sessions. I explained how to handle this situation and the importance of meeting the child where they are, emphasizing that we should respect their need for rest if that’s what they require. I also shared a policy in my practice not to bill for sessions where therapeutic work couldn’t take place due to the child’s exhaustion. Providing exceptional customer service and prioritizing the child’s well-being above all else is crucial in our practice.
