2017 Lecture
Patrick C. Friman, Ph.D., ABPP

"Behavioral Pediatrics: Integrating
Behavioral and Pediatric Science
and Practice"  


April 4, 2017
Hammer Theatre
101 Paseo de San Antonio
San Jose, CA 95113
3:00 p.m.
Admission: FREE 

Behavioral Pediatrics (BP) integrates behavioral and pediatric science and practice to promote the health of children. The high prevalence of child behavioral problems that initially and often only present in primary care pediatric settings, as well as the reciprocal nature of interactions between medical and behavioral factors in child health, has led to dramatic growth in BP over the past 30 years. This growth represents significant and expanding career opportunities for child clinicians.

Dr. Friman will discuss the origins and general context of BP and supply research-based examples of health education and prescriptive treatment interventions targeting routine behavior problems, behavioral problems with medical dimensions, medical problems with behavioral dimensions, and adherence to treatment.
