A psychologist is an expert in childhood development who works with children and adolescents to diagnose and help resolve issues that cause emotional or behavioural problems. Child psychology is important because it can help us better understand how kids tick as well as how best to support them to become well rounded individuals. It is therefore useful in assisting both parents and teachers to better understand and help children in their care.
There are 5 main areas covered within child psychology:
- (Initial assessment, behavior assessment, learning assessment, etc.,)
- Child, adolescent, and family assessment
- Psycho therapy, behavior therapy
