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 20 years. There are serious challenges ahead, but there are more reasons to be hopeful than are currently recognised.  Join us in person or online to hear about cutting-edge research from UEA’s newest professors, covering topics affecting all areas of living today. These free public lectures are open to all and there is a chance to ask questions and meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.
