Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi and thanks for writing JA
Please DO NOT PRESS ACCEPT as this is an informational request only.
I am happy to make some calls for you if I can help you but I am a little confused as to why you are narrowing your search to clinical psychology? If your child has already by diagnosed is there a specific reason you are requesting a clinical psychologist? Can you tell us why you are searching for a clinical psychologist specifically and not a child specialist or someone with a stronger background in this area?>
Thanks so much for the information so we can best help you from JA.
I have worked for several years with the wonderful experts at Emory University and find that one of the best clinical programs in the country. For whatever reason, none of the experts I have worked with over these years is a clinical psychologist so I am going to opt out of this query and allow others more qualified to respond.
In the interim I am sending you the site for childrens mental health at Emory which is not far from you.
In case you change your mind on this.
I wish you all the best on this.
Opted out and referred to a clinical psychologist online now. If there is no response this evening you can refer your follow up question to Dr. Sybill Keane who is a clinical psychologist and who will direct you from here.
I thought you should be aware of a resource that will assist you in finding the right person in your area. You can contact the American Psychology Association for assistance with finding a Clinical Psychologist with the expertise and experience you require near you. Take a look at the American Psychology Association's locator service here. You can use this to find Psychologists in your area and there is a phone number you can contact if you want a referral arranged for you. I would recommend you contact them by phone so that you can specify your particular requirements. Also, take a look at an article published by the APA here. It's an interview with a senior Psychologist and covers some of the things you should consider when you looking for a Psychologist.
I hope this is of some help, best of luck!
