A good friend suggested that I turn my Pediatric Psychologist DrAudraWalsh FaceBook page posts into a blog. I don't know the first thing about blogging, so I'm going to give this a whirl and see how it goes.
My hope is that I can bring awareness to the benefits of pediatric psychology for all parents and children (those who may be experiencing difficulty and those who are thriving). I will try to touch on common concerns parents have for their children, spanning from infancy and early childhood through young adulthood. Periodically, I will provide some useful tips/tricks, grounded in both research and experience. Also, I will try to demystify effective therapies for a variety of behavior/mental health problems commonly experienced by youth. Finally, I will offer my insights into parenting- these come not only from a well-seasoned psychologist but also, perhaps more importantly, a mom.
If there is a topic you'd like to hear about, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact page on this website. I'd love to hear from you.
All the best,
