When would you see a child psychiatrist?
The child psychiatrist is a psychiatrist for children and adolescents, that is to say a medical doctor who specialises in disorders of the psychic system in patients under 18 years of age.
He/She can :
Make a diagnosis and put into words a psychological problem (which, moreover, in children, readily takes on a somatic aspect): Attention deficit disorder, depression, eating disorders, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety disorders , reaction disorders…
Prescribe medication in the (relatively rare) cases where it is necessary and organise medical and psychological follow-up.
Offer individual or even family therapeutic follow-up: in fact, the child living within his family and being more dependent on it, the intricacies between family and individual problems are more important than in adult psychiatry.
At the parents' request, make the link with the school to help the child feel better understood in his school environment.
Propose certain therapeutic tools to help the child or adolescent to mobilise their resources in order to become an actor of their own change towards well-being (hypnotherapy, support therapy, solution-oriented therapy, etc.).
