Welcome to the website of the Stanford Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.  In these few pages we wish to provide you with an overview of our Program’s activities. By integrating our clinical and research efforts we strive to advance knowledge in our field and provide state-of-the- science care with a well informed and relevant approach. Our dissemination efforts attempt to deliver this knowledge to populations that are far from our reach. Understanding the critical role of prevention and early intervention in the lives of children who struggle with stress, anxiety and trauma guides our policy and education efforts.
