Dr. Philip Tam is a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist with more than 15 years experience in both the public and private sector. Originally from the UK, where he did his basic medical degree and junior training, he moved to Sydney in 1999.
He has a wide range of clinical interests and expertise within the broad field of child psychiatry, including treating depressive and anxiety disorders, ADHD, autistic-spectrum disorders and other complex mental health difficulties. He places an emphasis on the family and broader social/educational environment on both how these shape the development of a client’s condition, and how they can be addressed and improved to assist in the journey to recovery. He gives particular emphasis to any relevant cultural or trans-cultural aspects which may be relevant to the client.
Dr. Tam is also an acknowledged Australian and global pioneer in the emerging field of ‘internet-related psychology’ (sometimes dubbed ‘internet addiction’), and is currently involved in many local and international research projects in this area. He has written numerous articles and book chapters on this topic for general and professional audiences, presents lectures and workshops on this, and regularly comments in the international media. He co-presents a free series on iTunes podcasts on this topic – ‘The Healthy Digital Diet’, and in 2011 helped set up Australia’s first public-service information and website to assist families – please visit www.niira.org.au
