USA in 2019. Ms Minh Hien also joined fellowships focusing on Child Development, enhancing her expertise in paediatric clinical psychology.

Her choice to specialise in paediatric psychology was driven by her passion for caring for children and her observations of substantial advancements in ways to treat children, as well as progress being made by young patients. Following extensive years of study, practice, and work at psychological counselling centres in the US, psychologist Nguyen Vo Minh Hien identified potential to alleviate obstacles in later development through early detection and intervention of children’s psychological and behavioural issues.
