Mary Peters Sellars-Polchow Chair in Psychiatry; Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics; Vice Chair for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry; Director, Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health

A comprehensive community based program provides assessment and treatment of children who have been maltreated for a 4 parish area and consultation statewide. This involves weekly meetings with child protective services workers, supervisors, managers and attorneys. Child Psychiatry Fellows rotate on a year-long basis one day a week, and Triple Board Residents rotate for 6 months 1/2 day per week. In addition to evaluation and treatment of children and families in the context of a multidisciplinary team, fellows and residents are involved in decisions about how best to advocate for best interest of the child in a program that works closely with child protective services and juvenile court judges.
