Medical examinations or treatments are often necessary, essential and life-saving. In addition to the curative effect, patients may also occur physical and emotional injuries as a consequence of the examination or treatment. Children are particularly at risk of developing stress symptoms after medical treatment due to their increased vulnerability and their limited, individual and age-related coping strategies.
In this application-oriented workshop the following questions will be discussed and the participant will get to know:
