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.
