Keynote Presentation "Children with Incarcerated Parents" - Julie Poehlmann-Tynan, PhD
Millions of children experience the incarceration of a parent each year in the United States. Especially when children are very young, parental incarceration has implications for the child's health and well-being and exposure to additional adversity. This presentation will provide information about the context of parental incarceration, impacts on infants/toddlers/preschoolers, and what professionals can do to help.

"Tales from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: Impact of Pediatric Medical Traumatic Stress on Infants and Their Families" - Marian Williams, PhD
Starting life in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is profoundly stressful for infants, parents, and the whole family. This presentation will describe the impacts on infants and their families of hospitalization early in life, protective factors that increase resiliency in the face of pediatric medical traumatic stress, and considerations for educators, mental health professionals, and early intervention providers when working with children who were exposed to early medical trauma. Videos of mothers whose child had a NICU stay will illustrate experiences from the family perspective.
