The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Intake/Consultation Service is the gateway to the overall array of services in our Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic. Whenever parents call the clinic for an appointment, a consultation is scheduled with a clinical child psychologist. The goal of the consultation is to provide the family with some direction and to determine the need for further services. Psychology Child & Adolescent Fellows have the opportunity to be involved in this process by observing and/or actively participating in the consultations.
The Family Oriented Pediatric Consultation involves implementation of a systems approach to managing cases in family medicine.
Pediatric Consultation Service is a joint venture between the Departments of Child Psychiatry and Pediatrics. It affords pediatric attending physicians and residents the opportunity for psychology consultation for their patients who present with emotional and behavioral problems. Child psychology Child & Adolescent Fellows and pediatric residents work closely with each other in this interdisciplinary approach to patient care.
To extend and enhance the clinical experience, Child track Child & Adolescent Fellows spend at least four months, part time, as participants in the Adult track seminars. Child track Child & Adolescent Fellows can carry one or more adult psychotherapy cases.
