Childhood (about 5 to 12 years old)
Child psychologists investigate every aspect of child development. We look into how children develop mentally, physically, and emotionally. It should not be surprising that these are intertwined and as one of them changes, so do the others. We study how children learn, think, interact, and respond emotionally to those around them, make friends, understand emotions and their own developing personalities, temperaments, and skills. by doing this, we better understand their experiences.
We work with typically developing children and their families who may struggle a little bit as they transition from one experience to another. Additionally, we work with children experiencing mental health struggles. We work with children, parents, and caregivers to help create and develop a system tailored to work for you. To learn more about child development, parenting, and/or treatment services we may provide, you may reach us here at Behavioral Wellness. You may also find a lot of great information at the American Psychological Association‘s Society of Pediatric Psychology, Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic, the American Association of Pediatrics websites, amongst others.
Adolescence (12 years old to Adulthood)
Adolescence is the period of transition between childhood and adulthood. It includes some big changes—to the body, and to the way a young person relates to the world. The physical, sexual, cognitive, social, and emotional changes happening during this time can bring anticipation and anxiety for both children and their families. Understanding what to expect at different stages can promote healthy development throughout adolescence and into early adulthood.
Older Adulthood – Geropsychology
According to the American Psychological Association, geropsychology is a specialty in professional psychology that applies the knowledge and methods of psychology to understanding and helping older persons and their families to maintain well-being, overcome problems and achieve maximum potential during later life. Geropsychology appreciates the wide diversity among older adults, the complex ethical issues that can arise in geriatric practice and the importance of interdisciplinary models of care.
