UNICEF and the Armenian Association of Child and Educational Psychologists developed this guidebook in 2020 to support the work of professionals that provide psychosocial assistance to children and parents. The guidebook was developed with the financial support of the UK Government’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF).

From psychologists, social workers, case managers to special educators and other professionals that work with children and their parents, this guidebook will help to understand the specifics of age-related developmental phases during childhood and the myriad of issues confronted by children at different stages of life.

The guide will equip practitioners with necessary knowledge and understanding of children’s psychology and mental health, and how to put it into practice, avoiding common pitfalls and upholding children’s best interest.

The guide includes separate sections focusing on psychosocial assistance for children with special education needs or children in difficult life circumstances, as well as work with parents and caregivers.
