Psycho-social support for parents and children in extreme situations.

The situation regarding critically sick children who must remain for longer periods in intensive care or on the neonatology ward is particularly stressful for the parents and they often require special support.

In this regard Stiftung Chance is fortunate in being able to count on the experience of Dr. Johanna Beckmann, senior doctor of psychosomatic medicine and psychiatry. She is also a specialist doctor in the fields of child and juvenile psychiatry and is an experienced psychotherapist.

Johanna Beckmann supports not only affected children but also their families, in order to prevent any imbalance or disequilibrium setting in which could cause additional distress and lead to post-traumatic stress disorders.

Stiftung CHANCE finances a 10% position for Dr Johanna Beckmann in the Children’s Hospital Zürich.
