Specialist clinical treatment is available for a variety of psychological difficulties that adolescents deal with on a daily basis, such as, sadness and depression, stress and anxiety, anger, self-harm and relationships. Adolescence is a time of individualisation and a time when the family structure and social dynamics can alter. Marsden Clinical Psychology acknowledges this period of adjustment and aims to build a therapeutic rapport with adolescents struggling to cope with these changes and emerging mental health issues, whilst placing emphasis on achieving individual goals and promoting emotional wellbeing.
Social & Emotional Skills for Kids
Assessment of social/emotional skills in kids Most people have heard of autism, or even may know someone who has been diagnosed as "on the spectrum", and you may even know that someone on the autism spectrum is likely to have deficits in relating to others socially and emotionally. Knowing the exact nature of autism and it's symptoms is more complex however, and it takes specialised training to determine whether an individual meets diagnostic criteria for autism spectrum disorder (the official DSM 5 diagnostic term). What's more is, the diagnosis of autism can be complicated by other factors, such as comorbid disorders like ADHD and anxiety, or attachment related developmental problems.
