Given that nowadays many individuals and their families have seen their social conditions worsen, the need for psychological help has increased. However, the available answers are insufficient and/or too expensive for most users.
Therefore, we propose a Social Clinic of Psychology which aims to make accessible a service directed to children, youth, adults and seniors.
Targets and Areas of Intervention
Intervention with CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS:
Psychological and/or development assessment
Psychological consultation and counselling – Psychological consultations will address situations of emotional fragility, the promotion of personal and social skills or the stimulation of cognitive skills.
Psychopedagogical counselling – The area of psychopedagogy will address learning difficulties, dyslexia, dysorthography, attention deficit, among others.
Vocational and Vocational Guidance for adolescents (3rd cycle up to the 12th grade)
With the most advanced tests that exist in the Portuguese market, normalized and measured in Portugal. The interests and professional motivations, the cognitive capacities and personality characteristics of the young are evaluated.
With fast response, confidential and high reliability.
Intervention with ADULTS AND SENIORS:
Psychological consultation and counselling
How it works
The user schedules the first appointment directly with the psychologist of the Social Clinic of Psychology. The user must arrive in advance so that, before the appointment, he/she has enough time to go the CCPC administrative office in order to pay for the service and receive a personal card to register future appointments.
In the first consultation, the doctor will open a medical file and identify the request; in addition, the response conditions will be established or the user will be referred to another service, if the problem presented does not fall within the competencies of the Social Clinic of Psychology.
As for the response conditions, the doctor will establish the number of appointments to be held if the request entails a psychological assessment and/or the frequency of the psychological or psychopedagogical counselling.
Counselling consultations are scheduled every month (according to the frequency agreed with the psychologist)..
Price and Method of Payment
The first consultation costs €40. The following consultations cost €35, except in Social Cases duly assessed by the CPPC Social Service, which will open a procedure and establish an amount corresponding to the calculated capitation.
The scheduled consultations must be paid at the beginning of each month at the CCPC administrative office.
Consultations must be cancelled or rescheduled until the day before the appointment, except in cases of emergency or justified impossibility.
Unjustified absences and/or absences which were not communicated in advance, therefore preventing another user on wait-list from being seen by the doctor, will not be reimbursed.
Duration of Consultations
The first consultation and assessment consultations will have a duration of up to 90 minutes.
Follow-up consultations will have a duration of 45 minutes.
