NEW SERVICE: Pediatric Health Psychology

 

A pediatric health psychologist specializes in the assessing and treating the psychological aspects of chronic or acute illness. Goals of therapy often include understanding the psychological impact of a new medical diagnosis, improving children’s quality of life, increasing adherence to prescribed medical treatments, removing barriers to proper adherence, and lessening the impact of an illness on a child and family’s well being.
