Social Workers are mental health therapists that help children through talk and play-based therapy to figure out the sources of stress or problems, help them strengthen their coping skills and find effective solutions. They often look at family and community connections and how those connections affect thoughts, feelings and actions.
The Social Workers that work with LSCTS are registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and have a Master’s Degree in Social Work. Social Workers must participate in continued professional learning and skills development to fulfill the requirements of the college.
Social Workers can serve in a variety of workplace settings, including hospitals, community centres, schools, social service agencies and private practice, such as LSCTS.
Social Workers are considered eclectic therapists, implementing a variety of skills, knowledge, interventions and strategies in order to assist their clients and their families.
Social Worker services are offered at LSCTS.
Psychotherapists are mental health therapists that help people, primarily through talk-based therapy, to improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. They do this by working on bringing positive changes to a person’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning.

Psychiatrists can work in many different environments, including hospitals and private practice. Since Psychiatrists are physicians, their service fees are covered by provincial and territorial health plans, such as OHIP. Your family doctor will be able to refer you to see a psychiatrist.
