If people find they have difficulty in relationships with peers, they may be experiencing some interpersonal issues or individual mental health concerns.

Available Treatment Options

Therapists and counseling interventions for peer relationships for children may include Play Therapy to process trauma and emotions, social skills training, communication techniques, or other specified therapeutic processes based on their diagnosis.
