post-traumatic stress disorder in children

Tuesday 17th March 2020 - 18:30

A child in every classroom: tackling post-traumatic stress disorder in children and adolescents
Prof Richard Meiser-Stedman – Norwich Medical School
Recent epidemiological surveys suggest that a significant minority of youth in the UK - potentially as many as 7% - will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in their childhood or adolescence. How do we tackle this public health burden? In this talk, Prof Meiser-Stedman will summarise how research - particularly from a cognitive psychological perspective - has informed our understanding of this devastating condition over the last twenty years. There are serious challenges ahead, but there are more reasons to be hopeful than currently recognised.
Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. These lectures are free and open to all, and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night, or watch live via YouTube. Each lecture is followed by a free drinks reception, with a chance to meet the speaker and ask them questions about their research.
