What is Child Psychology ?

Child psychology is an area of psychology that looks at development in children from their social, emotional, physical and cognitive sides. It attempts to understand these changes in terms of biology and the external environment. Child psychologists work towards understanding how a child may think, learn, reason etc. They study their emotional responses, social bonds and aspects related to emotion and personality. Child psychology also deals with assessing and understanding the skills children develop at different ages. A child psychologist will often work with a child based on the milestones that are associated with their age group. They also look at how social and cultural factors play a role in child development.

Types of Child psychology

A child need not be abnormal to see a child psychologist. The psychologist may simply be administering a test, or hearing out a child. They will also often address some of the following issues when working with children:

  • Biological issues associated with developmental milestones
  • Socio-emotional development issues
  • Cognitive development and potential deficits
  • Health related problems.
  • Stress and coping related to developmental change.
  • Dealing with grief, trauma and loss
  • Social environment related issues- such as bullying, peer pressure etc.
  • Behavioural problems
  • Adolescent issues such as addiction, pregnancy etc.
  • Evaluation of intellect
  • Disorder such as depression, anxiety etc.

Treatment for Child psychology

Child psychologists can provide treatment for infants, toddlers, children and teens. They will conduct assessments, suggest and implement interventions, work on preventing certain issues as well, and provide the resources to improve the area being looked at. Child psychologists are also trained to work with children carefully.

While the forms of therapy used may be similar to those used for adults, such as CBT, testing, talking etc., children may also get fatigued more easily, Therefore, a psychologist may employ games, pictures and other activities in order to engage the child. They work towards resolving any issues the child may face and work closely with the child’s caregivers to do so.
