You are invited to UEA’s Autumn Inaugural lecture by Prof Richard Meiser-Stedman (Norwich Medical School)


“A child in every classroom: tackling post-traumatic stress disorder in children and adolescents” 


“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. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy these open public lectures and there is a chance to meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.


All lectures are free, with no need to book
