Child and Adolescent Psychology (Pedagogy)
Development of personality is a process. This process is like a computer game that offers prizes in various stages. Certain duties are assigned in each phase. Each child that fulfills those duties is entitled to progress into the next phase. However, a child cannot progress, if the requirements of a previous phase cannot be met. If the phases that should be reached cannot be accessed in all aspect due to any reason whatsoever, personality development of the child may be influenced negatively even until adolescence. Our hospital offers psychological development counseling for children aged 0 to 18 years to recognize this type of crisis periods, prevent potential problems before they progress or to cope with them rationally when they actually occur.
Personal psychotherapy, game therapy, family therapy, parent education, family counseling and development and supervision of children aged 0 to 6 years are available in our department. Various psychological evaluation tools, including Intelligence and Development tests, are also used for treatments. IQ tests are utilized to determine whether the child has a learning barrier and to measure the existing intelligence potential – the level of learning. The children are provided with psychological support, treatment planning and education for various problems and diseases in the unit.
