BCHP Specialty: Psychology and Neuropsychology

The Department of Pediatric Psychology and Neuropsychology provides psychological services to children and their parents while a child is in the hospital. The request for our services can be made by the doctor or the family.

We see children and adolescents who are anxious, depressed or overwhelmed by a hospitalization or diagnosis. We also provide ongoing services and support to children with chronic illnesses who are hospitalized often over time. We also see children for behavioral difficulties, eating disorders or noncompliance issues.

Our services include crisis intervention, short-term psychotherapy (cognitive/behavioral, dynamic or supportive), relaxation techniques and hypnosis. We also work with pain management services at the hospital and offer follow-up services after discharge from the hospital.
