Speaker

Kasia Kozlowska, a child and adolescent psychiatrist and a clinician researcher in the area of functional somatic symptoms, runs a multidisciplinary consultation-liaison team committed to the close integration of research findings and clinical practice. In collaboration with the Physiotherapy Department, Adolescent Medicine Department, and Hospital School, she also directs an inpatient Mind-Body Rehabilitation Programme for children and adolescents with functional somatic symptoms. Because research with these children/adolescents shows activation of the stress system, the multidisciplinary team uses a stress-system model to understand and treat functional somatic symptoms. Her new book, Functional Somatic Symptoms in Children and Adolescents: The Stress-System Approach to Assessment and Treatment (co-authored with Stephen Scher and Helene Helgeland), will be published Open Access by Palgrave Macmillan in mid-2020.
