Parents and their children; American Family Children's Hospital Health PsychologistsThe Pediatric Health Psychologists at American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin help patients and family members manage their behavioral and emotional needs.
Coping with a child's medical condition can be challenging. Research shows that psychological support and intervention can have positive effects on a child's ability to cope with an illness or injury.
Health psychologists recognize the emotional challenges faced by families of children receiving inpatient and outpatient medical treatment. After assessing the child's emotional, behavioral and/or cognitive needs, health psychologists offer ongoing emotional support, education, counseling and guidance.
Services are offered to inpatients and on an outpatient basis.
Special Issues
