Abstract

Beth Ellen Davis, MD, MPH, and Elizabeth M. Stafford, MD, who are both Colonels in the U.S. Army, have put together a set of outstanding articles that focus on topics related to the theme Child Stress for this issue of Pediatric Annals. These insightful works help us to understand and recognize stress in childhood, depression in mothers (and fathers) of our patients, the impact of traumatic events on children, childhood coping issues related to changing caregivers, parenting at times of crisis like 9/11 or wartime, and recognition of pediatric and adolescent stress. The final piece “Caring for the Pediatrician” is by the master, T. Berry Brazelton, MD, and should not be missed.
