Doughnuts with Di: The Opioid Crisis and Early Intervention

Event Description

Misuse of and addiction to opioids has reached an epidemic level, and Ohio has a very high percentage of families affected by this crisis.  Newborns of women addicted to opioids may experience many physical and psychological consequences at birth and throughout development.  In this webinar, Dr. Robert Gallen will focus on what we currently know about the effect of opioids on developing children and how to use this information to plan interventions with infants, toddlers and families.

Dr. Gallen is theMaster’s Program Coordinator for the Applied Developmental Psychology Program at the University of Pittsburgh.  He has served as an early intervention provider since 1998 using the BDI and other instruments to identify children with Kentucky's First Steps and currently Allegheny Pennsylvania's Alliance for Infants and Toddlers.  He teaches graduate level courses in Assessment and Family Therapy and supervises advanced field placement work.
