Child & Adolescent Services
Who do we help?
Our Child and Adolescent Services Program is committed to working collaboratively with children, adolescents, and their families toward the goal of improving their quality of life.
What type of Treatment do we Offer?
Services include individual and family therapy, and parenting skills training. Typical treatment length is 12 to 16 weeks; however in select cases the treatment may be longer. All services are provided by advanced doctoral students and supervised by licensed clinical psychologists. Our treatment providers deliver evidence-based approaches for the assessment and treatment of children ages 6 through 17 years for concerns such as:
- behavioral problems (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder - ADHD, oppositional or disruptive behaviors, anger management)
- emotional problems (anxiety, depression, adjustment)
- social skills challenges (e.g., trouble making and/or keeping friends)
- chronic illness (e.g., adherence, coping, quality of life)
Depending on the presenting concern, we also offer comprehensive psychological, psychoeducational and neuropsychological assessments. These evaluations include parent and child interviews, behavioral observations, formal test administration, reports, personal feedback to parents and school consultation as appropriate. Common presenting concerns are listed below:
- academic and school challenges (e.g., potential learning disability, poor grades, low motivation)
- cognitive concerns (e.g., IQ, processing, working memory, executive function)
