Child and Adolescent Services

Children often demonstrate adjustment difficulties through their behaviors. Tantrums, defiance, or even sullen and depressed moods may signal the need for assessment and intervention. Salem Psychological Associates includes several therapists with specific expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of children’s emotional difficulties. Often children’s difficulties reflect issues that are impacting the family generally. The therapist will meet with families to provide a comprehensive understanding of the nature of the child’s difficulties, including how they may be related to family problems, and work with those impacted to develop more effective ways of coping. Services may include:

  • Psychological Assessment/ Psychological Testing
  • Educational Assessment
  • Substance Abuse Assessment
  • Individual therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Parenting Education
  • Coordination with school staff for relevant services
