Studies have frequently suggested that by the age of three, children have fully formed their self-concept and Identity. They have already determined if they are “good” or “bad.” Throughout their childhood and adolescence, however, they go through stages of cognitive development that impact their behaviour as they progress. It is therefore very important to be aware of your children’s behaviour as it will likely be similar to their behaviour later in life. It is this exact concept that influenced David Kalmanovitch to become a child psychologist.
Born and raised in London, England, David Kalmanovitch is a child psychologist with more than 15 years of experience. Mr. Kalmanovitch has always been interested in studying human behaviour, with the hope of being able to identify root causes and influence future behaviour for the better. While he was originally inclined to work with adults, he quickly realized that he would have better hope at making an effect by working exclusively with children, as they are influenced more primarily by environmental and societal factors.
In addition to working with his patients, David Kalmanovitch is a professor and acts as a mentor for many of his students. He makes an effort to study current affairs and factors that may alter behaviour.
When he isn’t working or teaching, David Kalmanovitch spends time with his wife, works to stay active, and reads in order to further his professional development.
