I am Abdulbaghi Ahmad,
Child Psychiatrist and Associate Professor at the Uppsala University in Sweden.
And I am IACAPAP Ambassador and founding director of
Metin Health House for Child Mental Health in Duhok, Kurdistan region of Iraq.
I'm going to give you an account about a novel prevention technique called CIPCA,
Crisis Intervention Program for Children and Adolescents,
that's to preventing post-traumatic psychopathology.
CIPCA's background is consisting of based on the recent evidence-based knowledge.
And among it, it covers, the signs of the first aid,
both regarding somatic and psychological first aid,
the science of prevention,
that is both preventing primary prevention,
secondary or tertiary prevention both in psychiatry and in somatic science medicine,
and vaccination and immunization as a sign to prevent the development of diseases,
especially when regarding some factor or agent
coming from outside-inside the body of the person.
The next best of this method is depending on the psychopathology and prenatal diagnosis,
that is the early development of signs and
symptoms of developmental psychopathology in childhood.
And this yearly investigation has been possible during the last years,
thanks to the technical development and also the development
of new scientific methods both for prevention and treatment.
It is also depending on a multidisciplinary child
and adolescent psychiatry that is composed of
cognitive behavioral psychotherapy and at the same time
having used the salutogenesis theory in contrast to the pathogenesis,
that's also a new perspective
increasingly appearing in providing child psychiatry services.
And it depends on the recent trauma theories,
which is becoming more and more evidence-based.
