Early medical illness can be an acute and chronic stressor for children and families and can lead to stressful life events, including catastrophic medical costs and loss of employment. It can also lead to improved health behaviors. This presentation will review a regression analysis of secondary data from a large, nationally representative survey. Exposure to an early medical condition is compared with an outcome of parent-reported mental health symptoms. Potential protective and resiliency factors are tested for significance, including elements of the child ’s temperament, the family system, environmental factors, a...

Research shows that 93 percent of Americans support sexuality education in schools.

The literature shows that comprehensive sexuality education has a number of benefits from increased sexual health and prevention of adolescent pregnancy to improved relationships and academic performance. This perspective will increase the participants ’ knowledge of comprehensive sexuality education. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

Psychology defines identity as the qualities, beliefs, personality, looks, and expressions that make a person. Gender identity forms an important part of identity, because it dictates how one views oneself both as a person and in relation to other people, ideas, and nature. Race, religion, ethnicity, and culture also can play a significant role in shaping a person ’s identity. Categorizing identity can be positive or destructive. This perspective will clarify our understanding of the term “identity.” (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)
