Debora Previti

Clinical Psychologist
[email protected]

My name is Debora Previti and I come from Italy. I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist. I took my Bachelor’s degree in the 2000 at the prestigious University of Padua. After my internship I passed the examination accredited by the Italian Psychological Society and the Health Professions Council in 2002. I then started working as a researcher at the Department of Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Hepatology and Department of Medical Genetics at the University of Bologna. Being a researcher gave me the opportunity to deepen both my studies and interests. Whilst at university I fell in love with the neurosciences. The neurosciences study the relationship between the physical brain and behaviour. The brain is of course, extremely complex and I am very interested in studying disorders within the brain and nervous system that can alter behaviour and cognitive function. As a psychologist I am extensively trained in the assessment and diagnosis of psychological disorders. For several years I have been carrying out evaluation activities of the cognitive component (basic skills, superior and executive functions), behavioral and affective-relational aspects in order to create and implement psychoeducational and rehabilitative interventions for children with autism spectrum disorders, language disorders, ADHD, specific learning disorders and intellectual disabilities. The process of an evaluation assesses how a child’s brain functions. The assessment includes tests, interviews and questions that help outline the child’s performance when carrying out daily tasks, as well as identifying memory issues and other mental health concerns. The interviews I carry out also cover information on symptoms, medical history and medications that a child may be taking. I decided to work with children because they are a source of pure energy and I enjoy interacting with them, contributing to their well-being and identifying the specific causes of their difficulties. This remunerates me from the constant study that a complex discipline such as neuroscience requires. I moved to Phuket five years ago and for the last four years I have been collaborating with HeadStart International School; sharing far-sightedness and care in the education of children. This collaboration is working well and I am very happy to say that the school contributed to the acquisition of the most accredited clinical resources for a timely and effective diagnosis. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with education professionals, parents and children in the future. >In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order. Cit.
