Child and adolescent psychology
The Child and Adolescent Psychology Clinic offers specialist assessment and therapy for children, adolescents and their families in a one-to-one client focused environment.
The service is provided by clinical psychology trainees undertaking supervised advanced post graduate training and practice in clinical psychology. Your treatment is supported by supervision from highly experienced, registered clinical psychologists, in the area of child and adolescent services.
Due to ethical issues, the service is not available to staff, students or the immediate family members of those enrolled in psychology and speech pathology courses at Curtin University.
Range of services
The Child and Adolescent Psychology Clinic is proficient in a range of child, adolescent and associated family problems. These include:

The clinic also runs the Aussie Optimism programs for children. Participation teaches children social emotional skills and builds resilience. For more information please download the brochure.
Assessment involves an in-depth process of information gathering and collating, from a wide range of domains and contacts. An appropriate therapy is implemented that is specific to the individual needs of each client.
Sessions are recorded to ensure you receive the best intervention through close supervision with your clinical psychology trainee. Recordings are confidential and deleted after your treatment is completed.
