Episode 157 – When Is It Time to Take Your Child to a Psychologist? Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie
When Is It Time to Take Your Child to a Psychologist? – On Saturday, May 6 our host Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie spoke with Dr. Katie K. Lockwood, a leading expert who discussed the role of a child psychologist. As children grow and develop, they all react differently to life issues and relationships. Some take more time for potty training, sleep training, or struggle with separation anxiety. School-age children and teens may face bullying or have to deal with loss or chronic illness. Join us and listen to this leading pediatrician from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
