Child Counseling

What does it involve?
A Child Psychologist works mainly with children, and their family members. They evaluate developmental, behavioural and emotional challenges, and provide counselling, psychotherapy, and follow-up care. Child Psychologists are proactive and keen on collaborating with multiple stakeholders, parents, teachers, paediatricians, and other clinicians. Additionally, they are open to collaborating with elementary educators, and school administrators to evaluate classrooms/learning environments, to further suit children with special needs as well, if required. It is of direness for a Child Psychologist to have a strong research background in Child Psychology, and a good understanding of disorders that are common amongst children. In situations where immediate psychological treatment is required, a Child Psychologist is able to devise and provide effective crisis intervention to address major concerns.

Aside from this, a dedicated Psychologist at Heart It Out develops and implements non-clinical research programmes, and studies, as well as collaborates with other professionals to manage and implement various mental health projects. They participate in peer supervision, and continuous learning, and consult with other therapists related to professional and paraprofessional staff in the performance of therapeutic, or managerial roles, in addition to, casework. Maintaining a good medical profile on the Internet and other social media platforms are a few other responsibilities that a Child Psychologist has, as well as being able to evaluate future potential psychologists that enter the ecosystem.
