- Psychologist (M.Clin.Psyc)
Jamila Solomon holds a Masters of Clinical Psychology and specializes in clinical work with children and families affected by behavioural difficulties. Jamila’s clinical interests include the examination and application of cutting-edge interventions for treating childhood behavioural and emotional problems, as well as family-based interventions. She is trained in several evidence-based interventions (e.g., the Cool Kids Program for Anxiety, the Confident Carers Cooperative Kids, and the Integrated Family Intervention for Child Conduct Problems). Jamila has previously conducted research evaluating interventions for children with autism spectrum disorder as well as children with ADHD and is currently the PCIT Certified Therapist on a research project looking at an adaptation of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy for young children with conduct problems and callous-unemotional traits (e.g., lack of empathy/guilt) who are at risk for severe behavioural issues and antisocial behaviour. Her ultimate interest is providing help to children and families that will serve to promote early intervention and prevention practices.
