So in September we asked our dr about our sons behaviour he has a terrible temper and short fuse. He goes from normal to violent in the blink of an eye like if i am watching sometgibg on tv he doesnt likehe will yell and scrwam and hit me it is like he cant express his anger. Anyway she refered us to a phsychologist. I have veen mulling over it since September hoping things would get better.
Im not sure if a phsychologist is the right path?

Phsychologist for my 4yr olds behaviour?

Perhaps it's not the right path for your child but surely a good place to start. They may be able to refer you to a service more appropriate? I feel that's better then inaction and allowing your sons issues to worsen.

A psychologist sounds like the way to go. They have the ability to assess your child as well as recommend strategies to deal with his behaviours.

What about an occupational therapist or play therapy? That way if there is something more going on they can pick up on it in a more relaxed environment? Just a thought. Good luck.

I think a psych is worth a try. There are psychologists that specialise in child behaviour issues and will be able to tell you if something is going on with your DS and give you strategies for dealing with the behaviour. They will know the best assessment methods etc and can refer you on elsewhere if they think it's needed.

I would definitely give it a try.

We started with a psychologist with DS1s behaviour. She used cognitive behaviour therapy with him, which is play based and we found it effective to a point. We ended up seeing a psychiatrist, though, both were a bit similar in their approach, the psychiatrist helped us with more coping strategies.
I say go for it, you might just be surprised! Good luck

I'm not sure if it's the only answer, but yes it would help. My DS1 sees a psychologist as he has Aspergers, but she helps him a lot with coping with emotions, including anger, and gives him strategies to deal with it. She is very helpful for him.
