Child Psychologist

Child psychologists help children with mental and behavioral disorders, as well as those who have experienced traumatic events. These professionals need to understand a child’s interactions and behavior patterns in order to interpret and assess why a child acts the way he or she does, to help children deal with problems. These problems may be psychological, such as depression, or personal like those resulting from difficult past experiences. Child psychologists may work as researchers, studying the actions of children and seeking to find specific patterns or providing answers for further development. Child psychologists also work in support or supervision of social workers in a clinical setting.
