There is a rich history in psychology focused on examining child development. The earliest psychologists were interested in learning about how children turned into well-adjusted (or not!) adults, and how parental and other influences can make a big difference in a child’s life.
A teenager and a child’s development is even today still a thing of some mystery. Some parents are completely clueless on how to raise a healthy, well-adjusted child, while most are well-meaning — but often ill-prepared.
So it’s my pleasure to finally bring you a blog, Resilient Youth, devoted to these issues of child and adolescent development, and mental health issues in children and teens.
Resilient Youth is hosted by Pamela LiVecchi, PsyD, who is an early career psychotherapist. You can learn more about her here.
Topics the blog will cover include issues in the media, book reviews, and general discussions about human growth and development.
Please give Dr. LiVecchi a warm Psych Central welcome over at her blog, Resilient Youth, today!
This is an announcement only, so there are no comments.
