About Social Work

Pediatric workers provide therapy for children with emotional, cognitive, or behavioral delays and disorders. Children may receive social work services for support related to childhood anxiety and depression, social development, or difficulty with friendships, emotional regulation, or behavior issues or support through a traumatic event in their lives. Pediatric social workers work to provide children with the tools, support, and strategies to succeed in their daily lives.

Social work assessments: What to expect

Parents may seek social work services for their child if their anxiety or depression is inhibiting them from accessing their daily activities or their ability to enjoy life. Children may benefit from social work if they are having difficulty processing or handling the stresses of everyday life. Another common reason children receive social work services is overall emotional regulation or difficulty controlling their emotions. Social workers also target social skills and the ability to have successful friendships and relationships.

Social work via teletherapy

Social work sessions are highly effective via teletherapy. Research indicates that providing services via teletherapy is as effective as in person treatment, especially when it includes a parent collaboration and coaching model. Our team will work with you to make the process seamless for your child.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
