What We’ve Been Working on

The Psychology/Social Work Group has been working on establishing a protocol for psychological screening of patients with clefts and craniofacial anomalies which could be used not only to detect patients at-risk for psychological or social dsiturbances, but also allow for comparison between centers of the psychological well-being of their patients.
