Adult, Youth and Child Psychology
Psychology is the discipline that deals with the evaluation of cognitive and emotional mental processes (perception, motivation, attention, intelligence, personality, affectivity, sexuality, brain function, personal relationships, etc.) that govern human behavior. It is the responsibility of the psychologist, prior to the intervention, to consider the evolutionary stage (childhood, adolescence, adulthood or senescence) and the specific situation and personal circumstances of the client/patient.
