choosing a psychologist
Selecting a psychologist can be a daunting task, particularly when it comes to your children. When selecting a psychologist for your child or family, do your research. Ask around regarding the work and reputation of the available professionals in your community. Try to contact them by phone, and ask questions about things that are important to you. For example, does the psychologist have experience working with children with concerns like yours? What are his or her fees? What ages or specific issues do they most often treat? Try to find someone you feel comfortable with, and even more importantly, try to be sure your child feels comfortable as well. Upon a first visit with the psychologist, your child should rapidly feel respected, valued, and "heard," and should be able to develop an easy rapport with the psychologist.
