Wow......


Child Psychology is an interesting option for further studies.

As a Child Psychologists, you would mainly be involved with children issues right from developmental to Psychological to behavioral to learning and other related issues. You would encompass all age groups right from toddlers to adolescents.


But please note here, that Child psychology is not much of a preferred specialization in India, and hence it is not offered as a separate specialization.
Any Counselor whether a Clinical or Counseling psychologists, who is interested in dealing with kids can work as a child psychologists.
So if you opt for only child psychology, you are restricting yourself to deal only with kids.

Here please note that there is no 2 years masters program offering Child psychology, but you have institutes providing a PG Diploma program which ranges from 6 months to 1 year.
This makes you eligible as a child psychologists, but you then would be missing the testing and therapies done with teens to adults and as well you would not be eligible as a School counselor.

My advice to you would be to pursue a 2 years masters degree in Counseling psychology, which empowers you as a Counselor to deal with all age groups and as well as conducting Psychometric assessments and Career counseling. You could work with schools, counseling firms as well as clinics or hospitals and can begin on your own too.


Anyways it is your choice.
But as a Child psychologists, also get yourself other diploma or certificates pertaining to:
  • Play therapy
  • Special education
  • LearningDisability
As far as institutes are concerned, majorly all institutes provide the course in Child Psychology. Check:
Mumbai University
SNDT Womens University
Institute of Holistic Thinking
National Academy

Wish you good luck..........
