What do child psychologists do?

Child psychologists use a wide range of procedures and skills when working with children and adolescents, including:

  • Assessing psychological, intellectual, cognitive and behavioural issues with testing and evaluation.
  • Using interventions such as psychotherapy (talk therapy) and behaviour management.
  • Developing prevention programs, such as preventing bullying, addictions, teen pregnancy, etc.
  • Consulting with other professionals and healthcare providers who work with children.

Child psychology can use several different types of therapy techniques based on your child’s age and unique situation. Depending on the age and needs of your child, child psychologists may work solely with you (or guardians) to help with parenting skills or how to best address your child’s behaviours.

Art Therapy

Art therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate.

Art therapy can help with:

  • Developing self-awareness and personal insight
  • Improving sense of self and self-identity
  • Encouraging self-expression
  • Improving confidence and self-esteem
  • Resolving inner conflicts
  • Assisting with gaining a sense of control over difficult emotions and life situations
  • Aiding emotional regulation
  • Improving and maintain healthy psychosocial functioning
  • Promoting resiliency and improve coping skills
  • Supporting neuropsychological growth

Art is a universal language, that is, it is the same for everyone; It allows people to express feelings and experiences in a way that sometimes has no place in words.
