Specialized in: pediatric and adolescent psychiatry, psychotherapy, psychosomatics
The Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics at the Vivantes Neukölln Hospital offers the full range of services in these medical focuses. The department is headed by Dr. med. Yonca Izat.
The department specializes in the diagnostics and treatment of children and adolescents with various mental and psychosomatic disorders under the age of 18 (adolescents with typical disorders under the age of 21). The department works in close cooperation with the same department of the Vivantes Friedrichshain Hospital.
Treatment can be provided both in an individual form and in groups. For example, there are offered classes in special groups for children of school age (6-13 years) and preschool age (1-5 years), in which specialists pay attention to all manifestations of the disease and apply various methods for their elimination. Much attention is paid to gaming methods and the interaction of the child with parents.
Naturally, the treatment begins only after comprehensive outpatient diagnostics, presentation of indications and development of a treatment strategy.
