Rachael K Tan

Clinical Psychologist in Perth, Australia

As a registered and endorsed Clinical Psychologist, I am passionate about and have worked successfully with a variety of support systems of children in promoting:

• Positive behaviour (e.g., increasing compliance, strategies for the reduction of challenging behaviours, classroom behaviour management)

• Achievement of developmental milestones (e.g., toilet training, literacy and communication skills)

• Good mental health (e.g., managing anxiety-related issues such as separation anxiety and phobias)

• Working with/teaching children with Autism and other developmental disabilities

-----------------

I currently work part-time for a not-for-profit organisation servicing children and adults with a disability, on a specialist Behaviour Support Team, as a Behaviour Support Clinician.

Over the past four years, in addition to providing consultative advice based on the principles of Positive Behaviour Support to parents, teachers, and other allied health therapists, I have also provided direct therapeutic intervention services to clients, and training workshops to both internal staff as well as parties external to the agency.

Prior to this position, I worked for a period of two-and-a-half years as a Case Manager for a private organisation providing therapeutic and tutoring services in the home for children with Autism and other learning difficulties.

--------------

I am also a guest contributor for articles requiring an expert opinion on matters related to child psychology on theAsianparent.com, the largest parenting website in South-East Asia, and am a Board-approved supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia.

-------------

In working with adult clients, I most frequently utilise evidence-based therapeutic programs such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Exposure and Response prevention.
