Childhood and adolescence are particularly important moments in psychological development that may favour a lot of age-related problems.
The Psychology and Medicina Unit at Vithas Medimar International Hospital in Alicante, has an area for children and youth that is composed of a multidisciplinary team of psychologists, psychomotor therapists, psychologists and speech therapists. They collaborate with pediatricians and child psychiatrists to meet the needs of children, adolescents and families, in the health and education sector.
Each person’s circumstances are different, so we know the difficulty and the need for a comprehensive assessment of each patient, to develop a diagnosis and a specific and appropriate treatment.
Drawing, game… are some of the most important tools in the therapy, which will serve as the professional for the child evaluation.
Many people think that the child who comes to the psychologist, school psychologist, psychomotor or speech therapist is suffering some major disorder. However, the reality is very different.
Children and specialists
Specialists are working to help the child and the family to overcome disorders or major alterations, as well as helping to solve problems or situations of daily life. The aim is to prevent the possible development of a disorder, to facilitate the acquisition of positive thinking, and of course, the provision of tools that help him to resolve conflicts or difficulties.
