What does a child psychologist do?

A child psychologist deals with all manner of children and adolescents’ difficulties. Therapy for children and adolescents can help youngsters take responsibility for their behavior; develop and test new solutions to difficulties; learn new social skills; strengthen family relationships; work through past trauma and suffering; and particularly develop an improved understanding of feelings and how to express and cope with them in an appropriate manner. Therapy helps children and adolescents with a wide variety of emotional, behavioural, social and developmental difficulties. Family members are the most important people in children’s lives and thus play a pivotal role in the youngster’s healing process. Anytime a child or adolescent is in therapy, parents and the therapist will regularly meet at feedback sessions to discuss progress and plans for treatment. A child psychologist is also involved in assessments such as school readiness, developmental and educational evaluations.
