Department of Psychology

Characteristics:

The Department of Psychology provides outpatient and counseling clinico-psychological services for children and adults with no age limits, with services provided upon referral by a physician covered by the health insurance company. In addition to regular diagnostic and psychotherapeutic care, our pediatric clinic focuses on specialized diagnosis and psychological guidance of children with autism-related disorders and children with severe combined impairments since infancy and provides super-consultations in this specialty for all Czech such centers. The clinic for adults performs comprehensive psychological diagnostic examinations at a physician´s request, and individualized cognitive-behavioral therapy of patients with anxiety and somatoform disorders or depression, and group training of relaxation techniques. The department´s staff participates in the práce of the nutrition team, develops comprehensive therapy of eating disroders, and their individualized congitive behvioral therapy. Arrangements can also be made for examinations by persons due to sit for driver´s tests (self-paid patients).

Appointments for examination or admission to the department should be always made prior to visit (given the interest shown by patients, waiting times are fairly long).
