NICU Psychologist Consulting Calls

Psychologists in the group below have participated in telephone discussions regarding their work. Recordings of some of these discussions can be accessed on our NICU Psychologist Consulting Calls page for anyone interested. It is our hope that this information will serve both as a source for discussion of expanding psychosocial services in the NICU and as a mentoring resource for beginning NICU psychologists.
