Psychological Assessments are crucial for understanding the nature of concerns experienced by the child. We focus on exploring the severity, duration, frequency as well as the impact of the concerns on the functionality of the child.
An assessment is not just used for diagnosing the condition, but is used for several purposes like empowering the families, identifying the strengths of the child and family and providing a detailed plan of management which includes professional interventions as well as accommodations and modifications which can be made in the child’s environment for the child to flourish and actualize potential.
At our center, we conduct assessments for the following conditions:

The above assessments are conducted by experienced licensed professionals recognised by the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI).
CCAW provides psychological therapies for children, adolescents, and young adults who face various social, emotional & behavioural challenges. The therapists at CCAW aim to create a collaborative space to explore a person’s difficulties in a safe and confidential setting with the aim to help a person better understand their feelings in the context of their past experiences. This helps the individual feel a greater sense of happiness, empowerment, or perhaps feel less affected by particular experiences.
The therapies provided at CCAW are:
a) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing:
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing is an APA (USA) approved therapeutic approach that helps reduce posttraumatic stress. It assists in letting go of distressing thoughts and feelings associated with traumatic experiences as well as in increasing positive emotions of calm and confidence.
Desensitization – Desensitization refers to an individual becoming comfortable with the memory of an event perceived as fearful, but is currently over and now harmless.
Reprocessing – Reprocessing involves understanding a memory, ensuring that it becomes more useful than just fearful. This may often include replacement of negative thoughts related to the event with positive inputs and insights.
Trauma Counseling is effective for children, adolescents and young people with:
b) Behaviour Modification:
A psychotherapeutic intervention, behaviour modification aims to reduce maladaptive behaviours in children and adults by identifying the antecedent and consequences of the problem behaviour(s) and manipulating certain variables through reinforcers.

c) Play Therapy:
A lot of times children and adolescents find it difficult to find the right words to express their emotions and problems to their parents or other adults. Play therapy utilizes play, children’s natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words. As children play, they become comfortable and more open in being themselves and sharing their feelings. This gives the therapists an opportunity to connect with children and help them explore their emotions and gain insights into their problems. This self awareness and understanding gives children an opportunity to develop new coping mechanisms and in time a behavioural shift is also observed.
Play therapy can be used with various children, including children who have:
