Event- Working with Children in Mental Health:

Children are not mini adults, and specific considerations need to be made before deciding to work with this population.

In this introductory workshop you will be given an overview of these key considerations when moving into work with children in mental health, which includes unique modalities, differences in interpersonal neurobiology, seeing your client through an attachment lens, setting up an appropriate treatment space, and guidelines to working with parents and systems.

This workshop is aimed at giving you structure and direction while navigating some of the complex nuances that come with treating children and youth in mental health.

Workshop Objectives:


  • Differentiate between coaching and mental health treatment
  • Explore unique differences in the neurobiology of children verses adult clients
  • Define the four attachment styles in children and teens, and how that guides your clinical work
  • Describe an ideal treatment space for children, and how that can be adapted for a variety of treatment settings
  • Explore a variety of clinical modalities that are developmentally appropriate for children

Instructor Information

Tammy Schamuhn

Tammy is a Registered Psychologist, Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, author, and the Co-Founder of the Institute of Child Psychology. She also has a Bachelors of Education from the University of Alberta and practiced as an elementary teacher in Edmonton before going on to do her Masters degree in Psychology. Tammy has been working in private practice for the past decade years in Alberta, primarily with children and their families. She also offers clinical supervision to masters-level counselling students, and provisional psychologists. Since completing my degree, I have worked in a private practice setting with children, teens, adults and families. I work primarily from an attachment based perspective. This means that I work with clients to explore how early relationships affect how we come to understand our self, other people and the world. It is an honour to work with clients and families to create a space for lasting change. I endeavour to always approach my clients with respect, honesty, integrity and warmth.
