Koehler for Mental Health Professionals

Mental health professionals play a unique role in the lives of children and their families and, of course, approach this role from varied ethical and professional frameworks. Regardless of theoretical orientation, child clinicians work diligently to help children and their families cope with special mental health needs. This section of the website is intended to serve as a repository of information useful to professional clinicians from basic information on attachment and child development to assessment materials and continuing education.
