Pediatric Clinical Psychology

Overview

Services provided by the Division of Psychology include pediatric outpatient/inpatient evaluation, behavioral assessment and intervention (cognitive/behavioral, individual/family psychotherapy). Services are provided to the pediatric population (outpatient 90% inpatient 10%) and their families.

Chronic illnesses (e.g. cystic fibrosis, AIDS, sickle cell, cancer, diabetes, asthma) are also treated.

Approximately 40 outpatients and 1 inpatient are seen per week. Pediatric residents provide services under direct supervision and receive personalized feedback. Residents and nurses are provided with protocols for behavioral modification on hospital floors.
