    Finding a qualified child therapist

    Finding a qualified child therapist can be exhausting and frustrating. It is difficult to know where to start looking. Many times, parents resort to simply opening up the local phone book and making a call to the first name that catches their eyes. While this technique can be effective, it is not always the best approach. Phone books rarely provide a potential client with the most necessary of information regarding a prospective therapist. For instance, does this therapist use a behavioral approach or does he or she use a more spiritual approach? Is this therapist well-established or is he or she fresh out of graduate school? Does this therapist have office hours that work with your schedule or will you struggle to find a mutual appointment time? Can this therapist prescribe medication if needed, or will another individual need to be part of the treatment team?

    The above questions are rarely, if ever, answered in a small one-line phone book listing. You essentially get two bits of information from a phone book: a name and a phone number. This minimal amount of information obviously fails to provide an answer to some of the more important questions you may have. Such a lack of information can lead to a lot of unnecessary phone calls and wasted time.
