With millions upon millions of journal articles being published every year it is impossible to keep up.  Every month we usually ask some of our friends from PERUKI (Paediatric Emergency Research in UK and Ireland) to point out something that has caught their eye. This time we are doing something different. To coincide with DFTB18 in Melbourne here are the papers chosen by our Bubble Wrap Live! team.

“He held up a book then. “I’m going to read it to you to help you relax.”

“Sounds okay,” I said and I kind of closed my eyes.”

Love, life, and awesomeness: the impact and implications of language by Rachel Callander

Rachel Callander is an award winning photographer and mother who has turned her talent towards advocating for children with ‘Super Powers’. She has documented her journey in a beautiful book, the Super Power Baby Project.

With just over six months to go until our sophomore conference, DFTB18 ,in Melbourne it is time for us to reveal some of our fantastic line-up. We’ve come up with the overarching theme of Science & Story to reflect our mix of personal narrative and up-to-date medicine. We know that we cannot be everything to everybody but we are confident that there is something for everyone.

It is fun to have fun, but you have to know how: communicating with children by Ian and Callum Summers

The road paved with good intentions: are we destroying children’s resilience? by Liz Crowe

Liz Crowe is many things – a paediatric social worker, a PhD student, renowned presenter. But first and foremost she is a mother. In this talk she introduces us to the concept of resilience and asks us to take a really hard look at how we treat children.
