Our topic for the joint annual meeting of the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics SIG and the Child Abuse SIG at the 2022 PAS meeting was “Safe Discipline: Helping families respond to negative child behavior in culturally-sensitive ways without physical discipline.” Hiu-fai Fong MD MSHP co-chaired the session with then co-chair Jenny Radesky, MD. Fifty-five attendees were recorded, and lively discussion was had.
Please welcome Drs. Libby Milkovich of Children’s Mercy Kansas City and Ben Sanders of Oregon Health & Science University as our new SIG Co-Chairs. They are excited to contribute in this way.
At the upcoming 2023 PAS meeting we will be discussing ways to bridge mental health gaps between medical and school settings. Through collaborations, pediatric providers can facilitate or provide connections to school-based mental and behavioral interventions to overcome access barriers. Come to this session to learn key concepts from topic experts, hear about three local interventions making these connections, and rotate in small groups between each of them to discuss your specific curiousities. Don’t miss it!
