Before the appointment, you will be given a document informing you of our service conditions and how the clinic operates.
Suppose children and teenagers up to the age of 14 are being attended to. In that case, the first consultation usually takes place with the parents (or their legal representatives) to gather all the necessary information regarding concerns and the reason for the consultation request. In the following consultation, it will be only the child/adolescent. After the initial assessment phase, intervention objectives are defined together, and the intervention phase begins. In the case of children/adolescents, the involvement of parents (or legal representatives) is favored so that there may be a continuity of the work developed in consultation. Whenever justified, the school context, or others, may be involved in the processes, but only with the parent's consent (or legal representatives).
In the case of adult attendance, the consultations always occur with the client, except when there is incapacity when other significant people can be involved in the process. In all consultations, there is an initial evaluation phase and a subsequent return of the evaluation results, guiding the definition of the intervention objectives.
At the end of each appointment, a new appointment can be made, always coordinating the agendas of the client, the psychologist, and the clinic.
