Cátia Isabel Silva is a 32 year old writer that studied Health Psychology at the Lusíada University of Lisbon, where she graduated in 2007.
She made her internship at the mental hospital Miguel Bombarda (also in Lisbon) at the Neuropsychology Unit in 2006 and 2007. In the following year, she started to work with children aged 3 to 14 years old.
Along the way, she saw a bit of everything. There were plenty of situations that seemed copied off some regular manual, while others… they just didn’t belong in any category.
The idea of this blog appears in that precise context, not only as a way of passing along some knowledge but also as a way to show the true face of psychology.
