Pediatric Psychological Trauma Conference


Are you aware that . . . . . . . .

Children under the age of five

* are at the highest risk for accidents, illness and invasive disease,

* experience the most hospitalizations as well as emergency room, out-patient and doctor office visits,

* are the least prepared and most vulnerable to the pain, stress and unpredictability of medical events,

* are defenseless to the harmful effects of these early experiences that can last a lifetime

Significant research efforts have improved the outcome for premature infants in the NICU and countless studies have been undertaken that address the needs of 6 to 18 years olds. However children birth to five, the highest consumers of pediatric health care, have been neglected! This first-ever conference will begin to change that reality.

1st International Conference

We are bringing together leading experts in the medical community to

1) define the developmental significance of early medical trauma,

2) identify the impact of health care experiences on young children and

3) explore options for innovative research and developmentally grounded intervention and prevention strategies.
