Welcome to the Pediatric Psychology Resource Bank website!


Pediatric Psychology Resource Bank from Bryan Carter on Vimeo.

This website has been created for pediatric psychologists to share and access various user-friendly resources that our members can use in their day-to-day professional lives in conducting clinical activities in a variety of pediatric healthcare settings.  Additionally, we are also interested in acquiring materials that support the teaching, training, and the business aspects of our specialization. This website is sponsored by the Div54 Pediatric Consultation-Liaison Special Interest Group (Peds CL SIG) for use by Division 54 members.

Resource material that would be appropriate for this website include:

  • Assessment Instruments– Developing and sharing measures for key assessment domains (coping, adherence, illness knowledge, symptoms, pain, self-management competence, family functioning, risk assessment, etc.).
  • Intervention Protocols – Clinicians and researchers submit their treatment protocols, therapeutic tools, patient handouts, clinical forms, etc. This could spur more research on these protocols, ideally at multiple sites.
  • Digital Resources – Identifying (and developing) useful applications (apps) and digital resources (e.g., videos); identify (and encourage the development of )  useful websites for patient information and education, as well as clinician education and training, etc.
  • Quality Improvement Procedures and Measures – Developing methodologies to demonstrate that we are effective and valuable to the institution, e.g., medical cost offsets/reimbursement models.
  • Business of Practice Information – Reimbursement models, pros and cons of each, and how might we better collaborate as a group to advocate for the more adaptive models that make our profession and services economically viable now and in the future.
  • Forms, Brochures and Documents – Consent forms, video releases, informational brochures on different pediatric conditions and services, etc.
  • Practice/Advocacy Materials
  • Training Protocols – Syllabi and tools, e.g., discussion of how we integrate with psychiatry, pediatrics, developmental and behavioral pediatrics, etc., and their training programs; developing “best practice” models for training that could be adopted by other institutions; training tools pediatric psychologists can employ with medical students, medical residents, nursing, etc., to identify core curriculum goals, modules and teaching strategies, e.g., labs.

It is our hope and expectation that this Pediatric Psychology Resource Bank will become an accessible and valuable resource for the sharing of useful instruments, protocols and documents, as well as stimulate further research and development of more tools to support the valuable work of pediatric psychologists in our clinical activities.
